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

The Union is currently accepting applications for our 2014 Fall + Winter Fellowship session. Applications must be received by Monday, September 1st. We accept applications via Slide Room, to apply for our Fellowship program, please click here

FROM THE STUDIO | Monica Ghali  

We're at the halfway point in our fellowship and I still sometimes feel shocked (and then really overwhelmingly lucky) that I get to be a part of this program with such amazing people who are doing and creating amazing things.
