Bemis Center in Omaha Accepting Applications for Artist Residencies


Founded in 1981 by artists for artists, the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts in Omaha, Nebraska, supports artists through an international artist-in-residence program, temporary exhibitions and commissions, and innovative public programs.

The center is currently accepting applications for its spring and summer 2020 Artist-in-Residence program. Through the program, selected artists-in-residence enjoy generously sized private live/work studios complete with kitchen and bathroom and access to an on-site research facility. Located in downtown Omaha’s historic Old Market, the center’s 110,000-square-foot facility accommodates a broad range of artistic activity, providing artists-in-residence with twenty-four-hour access to extensive installation and production spaces and the Okada Sculpture & Ceramics Facility, a nine-thousand-square-foot industrial space.

The independently driven atmosphere and communal environment of the center encourages creative growth and experimentation, and artists are encouraged to participate in at least one opportunity for public presentation.

Residencies under this call are for the period January 22 – April 17, 2020, and May 20 – August 14, 2020. A total of twenty artists will be selected to participate (ten artists per residency session).

Residents will receive a $1,000 monthly stipend to help with materials, supplies, and living expenses while in residence, as well as a $750 travel stipend.

The program requires a $40 application fee.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Bemis Center website.
