Ten years ago, The Union for Contemporary Art was founded on the belief that artists play an essential role in shaping the cultural and civic landscape of Omaha.

While these ten years have held so many unexpected moments – they’ve only strengthened our faith in the power of art to manifest new possibilities. Illuminating the ways we create our community and world together.

Part of what makes The Union’s work unique is our commitment to supporting artists at all stages of their practice.

From the Fellowship and Co-Op Studios programs, to Exhibition, Populus Fund, Youth Engagement, and Performing Arts we are continually putting power, access, and resources in the hands of artists.

THANK YOU for your support!
