Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts facilitates the creation, presentation, and understanding of contemporary art through an international residency program, exhibitions, and educational programs. Located in an historic warehouse district in downtown Omaha, Nebraska, its studios, exhibition and rehearsal spaces, sculpture and ceramics facility, dark room, computer stations and new state-of-the-art recording studios are open to residents 24/7. Eleven artists are selected from applicants around the world to come to Bemis in three residency periods a year which last from 2-3 months.
We believe freedom of artistic expression is fundamental to an open and enlightened democracy and are committed to promoting and defending it.
