2022 Annual Report

2022 at The Union for Contemporary Art was another year of vibrant growth and connections. As we moved through our eleventh year of empowering artists and the communities they inspire, we also took some bold steps toward the future. We broke ground on the Shirley Tyree Theater – the future home of The Union’s Performing Arts program! Projects like this reflect our dual commitments to fostering the development of new creative work and creating space for our North Omaha community to gather in dialogue and fellowship.
