Opened in 1992, the UNO Art Gallery is a professional exhibition spaces consisting of two large galleries (1,500 square feet) and a Hexagon gallery (675 square feet) plus adjoining offices, a kitchen, and a storage facility.
The gallery presents contemporary art (made in the last 20 years) by artists with regional and national reputations. These exhibitions expose students to the diversity and vitality of contemporary visual culture and support the educational mission of the School of the Arts. In addition to a bi-annual exhibition of work by UNO Art Faculty, the gallery’s annual schedule includes BFA Thesis Exhibitions at the end of the fall and spring semesters and Juried Student Shows with prizes awarded by a noted regional artist or arts professional. Opening receptions, which are held for every exhibition, are free and open to the public.
The gallery also hosts a variety of events (lectures, gallery talks, tours, UNO Friends of Art events, and other programs) to supplement exhibitions. These events nurture and sustain the social, creative, and intellectual life of the department while providing opportunities to meet members and supporters of the Omaha art community.
