Art Gallery Preps for Student Exhibition
Omaha - The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Department of Art and Art History presents the Spring 2009 UNO Student Art Exhibition. The show will run Friday, Feb. 27, through Friday, April 3. An opening reception will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 27, at the UNO Art Gallery.
The event is a juried exhibition open to participation by UNO students enrolled in studio art classes. Submitted artworks can be executed in a variety of media, including two-dimensional, three-dimensional and intermedia. Art and Art History majors in UNO’s College of Communication, Fine Arts and Media are also eligible for the Bertha Mengedoht Hatz Memorial Scholarship Award.
The exhibition will also present the Hexagon Installation Program. The facility features a unique, hexagon-shaped gallery, and each spring semester UNO art students compete to create an “installation” in the space. The installation is a site-specific artwork that emphasizes interaction between the viewer and the artwork. This year the Hexagon Installation will feature Anne Thome. Thome will create an eerie garden with palm-sized wooden structures.
The UNO Art Gallery is located on the first floor of the Weber Fine Arts Building. The exhibitions are free, handicapped accessible and open to the public. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday, noon to 4 p.m.

UNO is celebrating its 100th anniversary. The celebration recognizes the partnership among the City of Omaha, its citizens and UNO to build a vibrant and dynamic community. The centennial theme is “UNO: Central To Our City Since 1908.” This theme acknowledges the past contributions of UNO to the community and sets the stage for great things to come.
UNO, inaugurated in 1968, emerged from the Municipal University of Omaha, established in 1931, which grew out of the University of Omaha founded in 1908. For Centennial information, go to http://www.unomaha.edu/100/.
