GEEE Meets the Union

The Union for Contemporary Art is a fledgling art center established in January 2011 as a resource to retain and foster local artists and members of it’s creative community. The Union offers opportunities for exhibition and critical reviews for emerging artists, and brings national arts leaders to Omaha in ways which allow for meaningful interaction. The Union also offers affordable studio space and the equipment necessary to support their creative process.

Their facility is a former food bank in the neighborhood of North Omaha.  The North Omaha community has been designated by the City of Omaha to be an Area of Low-Income Concentration and an Area of Minority Concentration. The area contains some of Omaha’s most physically, economically and socially distressed neighborhoods.

In February 2012, the facility opened its first studio spaces for artists representing fiber arts, sculpture and film-making. For more information on the Union for Contemporary Art, please visit their website.
