Additional Information

Serbian-born sculptor John David Brcin was commissioned by architects John and Alan McDonald to create the sculptural panels adorning the four corners of the Joslyn building. This statue of a Sioux warrior, originally proposed and modeled by Brcin in the late 1920s for the entrance to the Museum, was ultimately deleted from the sculptural program in favor of a less decorated approach to the building. In 2008 Omaha sculptor Matthew Placzek was commissioned to realize Brcin’s work for Joslyn’s new sculpture garden.
