The UNO Art Gallery is located on the first floor of the Del & Lou Ann Weber Fine Arts Building designed by Hardy Holzman Pfeiffer Associates LLP of New York. Opened in 1992, its professional exhibition spaces consist 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 UNO Art 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 Department of Art & Art History. 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 all visitors.

The UNO Art Gallery also hosts a variety of events (lectures, gallery talks, tours, and other programs) that supplement exhibitions. Along with Gallery openings, these events nurture and sustain the social, creative, and intellectual life of the department as well as provide opportunities to meet members and supporters of the Omaha art community. The Gallery is also used frequently as a space to present lectures and performances by other areas of the College of Communication, Fine Arts and Media as well as other UNO academic departments and organizations. Unless otherwise noted, these events are free and open to the public.
