Nov. 26-28 Joslyn Free Admission Weekend Joslyn Art Museum, 2200 Dodge St. Fri.-Sat. 10 a.m.-4 p.m., Sun. Noon-4 p.m. FREE (closed Thanksgiving Day) 342.3300, The local fine arts museum is doing a community service thing by offering free admission over the Thanksgiving weekend. The timing is good because Joslyn has a major temporary exhibition up, Beyond Realism: The Works of Kent Bellows , which should be more widely seen. The work of the late Omaha realist is mind-blowing stuff. Other temporary exhibits of note are: Seasons of Joy , a showing of Currier & Ives holiday prints from the ConAgra Foods Collection; and Golden Kite, Golden Dreams , a display of Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators award-winning images. Then there are the permanent collection staples, ranging from Old World to Old West to contemporary works. Bask in the building’s Art Deco design. The fountain court and atrium offer sublime vistas. The sculpture garden helps set it all off in magnificent relief.
