Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art
In 2003, Jerry and Margaret Nerman made a pledge (naming opportunity) of $1.5 million to assist in funding the construction of a contemporary art museum on the campus of JCCC.
Today, Johnson County Community College is home to the largest contemporary art museum in the four-state region and one of the region’s major providers for the visual and performing arts. The museum presents many of the region's most important exhibitions of leading-edge contemporary art including sculptures, paintings, ceramics, photography and works on paper.
The museum has received national and international acclaim for its architecture, exhibitions, educational programming, and collection, including both the JCCC Collection and the Oppenheimer Collection. Public Art Review magazine named JCCC as one of the top 10 university/college campuses for public art in America.
