Robert Henri occasionally comes back to his boyhood home to say hello.
The Holiday at the Henri program is a popular program for residents from around the region.
Regularly Scheduled Hours
From May 1 to October 31 the museum is open from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. There are four ways to experience the museum. First, visitors can watch a 30-minute video telling about the life of Robert Henri, or they can see our two exhibits: Robert Henri: From the 100th Meridian to International Fame and
From Cozad to State Prison: The Colorful Character of Miles Maryott. Visitors can also do a self-guided or guided tour of the museum and a guided tour of the art gallery. Many of those traveling on Interstate Route 80 usually just do the tour of the gallery because of time constraints. No matter, we will accommodate our visitors as best as possible.
Henri Arts Festival
The Museum annually sponsors a celebration on Robert Henri's birthday on June 24, 1865. In 2023 we will celebrate with a large birthday cake and exhibits on June 25th. Members of the museum staff give tours of the museum and gallery all day long and admission is free.
Artists of the Month and Artists in Residence
The museum sponsors two programs annually to promote the work of regional artists. The Artist of the Month program begins in May and goes through to September and presents the work of an artist for a month to the visiting public including a reception. The museum is also host to two Artists in Residence annually and those artists stay in the Cozad area for two weeks and provide demonstrations and create new work which is sold in the museum's gift shop and to visitors. A reception is held for each of them.
Holiday at the Henri
The museum hosts an annual holiday celebration the first weekend of December. This includes a reception on Friday and Open House on Saturday.
In 2023 the museum is planning to host events that will celebrate the 150th anniversary of the establishment of the community of Cozad. Announcements of those programs will be made on our Facebook page, on-line calendar, digital newsletter, and media releases.
