POWER POSITION   New work by Kim Darling

It's hard to improve on a great thing... but The Union's $100 Art Sale intends to do just that with our two-day fundraiser. Not only will you be able to score a great piece of art for an incredible price, but our two-day event includes stellar entertainment, drool-worthy raffles, great food + drinks and the chance to create art with some of Omaha's most innovative artists. All that -- plus a chance to help The Union support our local arts community while working for greater social justice in North Omaha!

Our Studio Fellowship Program was developed to combine our mission and vision, creating an experience for artists that not only supports their creative process, but also provides them with an opportunity to support our community.

Twice a year, artists from the greater Omaha area will be selected through juried process to serve as Fellows. Once selected, the artists receive the following benefits in exchange for their commitment to “pay it forward” by serving at least 25 hours of community service in North Omaha.

  • A studio space for six months, at no cost to the artist
  • $600 stipend for the purchase of art supplies and materials
  • A year-long membership to The Co-Op, which include 24-hour access during the fellowship
  • Professional development opportunities and critique
  • Participation in a group exhibition at the completion of the fellowship

Applications are NOW OPEN through September 7th for our Fall + Winter Social Practice Fellowship!
