ReCONNECT: Alumni Exhibition
ReCONNECT: Alumni Exhibition
In celebration of our studio art programs and graduates, the School of the Arts will mount an alumni exhibition in conjunction with the Weber Fine Arts Building's 25th year anniversary later this year. Working with former and current faculty and students and with the UNO Alumni Association, the exhibit hopes to reconnect with artist-graduates from near and far to exhibit works by a broad range of alumni-artists. The exhibition will be juried by Museum of Nebraska Art Curator Teliza V. Rodriguez
How to submit
Please send us images of five works and a one-page resume to be considered for the show. Entries will be accepted through until October 1, 2017. Selections for the exhibition will be made based on the quality of work submitted and the artist’s professional record as presented in a one-page resume. All media will be accepted. A limited amount of funds to support shipping is available and will be allocated after our list of works and artists is identified. In addition, one to three artists will be invited to present a lecture as part of the UNO Friends of Art Willson Lecture Series. A modest stipend is available for these lectures.

About the UNO School of the Arts
The program dates back to 1911 when Augusta Knight organized an art department at Omaha University. By 1916, art courses taught included art history, theory and practice, applied design, drawing, and watercolor. The University first offered a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree to students in 1933. Fine arts majors could also choose a Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (BS) in education degree. The programs of Art and Art History, Theatre and Writer's Workshop continue to inspire artists of all disciplines.
Today, located in the award-winning, neo-expressionist Weber Fine Arts Building, the Art and Art History Program is part of the School of the Arts in the College of Communications, Fine Arts and Media, offering a BA degree in art history as well as two studio art degrees: Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art (BASA) and the BFA. Many students also pursue K-12 teaching certification along with a BASA or BFA degree. Today the School of the Arts is ranked in the top 15% for art programs in the nation. The school offers studio instruction in painting, video game design, drawing, printmaking, papermaking, book arts, electronic imaging, art education, graphic design, sculpture, and ceramics.
