At the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, we create transformative opportunities for our Artists-in-Residence to explore and realize their most important ideas by providing: access to a supportive and rigorous intellectual community, robust opportunities for studio and social practice, generous live/work space, an abundance of time, extensive technical assistance and financial support.
The Bemis Center currently supports artists with three residency programs: at our main campus in the Old Market, at Carver Bank in North Omaha and through opportunities to work with our community partners.
The Bemis Center was recently recognized as one of the "Top 10 residencies around the globe" by ArtInfo, and Jane Alexander, the former head of the National Endowment for the Arts, has called the Bemis Center "one of the great treasures of its kind in the country."
