Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts is in search for artists for their residency program in downtown Omaha's historic Old Market. Selected artists-in-residence enjoy generous sized, private live/work studios complete with kitchen and bathroom. The Bemis Center's 110,000 square foot facility accommodates a broad range of artistic activity. Artists-in-residence have 24-hour access to extensive installation and production spaces and the Okada Sculpture & Ceramics Facility, a 9,000 square foot industrial space used for large-scale sculpture fabrication.
This independently-driven atmosphere and communal environment encourage creative growth and experimentation to confront new challenges. This is a process-based residency; there is no expectation or promise of an exhibition in our first-floor galleries.
Artists who are interested in applying to both 2018 open call opportunities (January–April & May–August) will be required to submit a separate application and application fee for each designated session. In the event an artist is selected for both, the artist will be only able to select one session to attend.
