2019 Bemis Artist-in-Residence Opportunities / Deadline: May 1, 2018


Deadline: May 1, 2018
Notifications to all applicants will be made via email on August 15, 2018.

Located in downtown Omaha’s historic Old Market, the Bemis Center’s 110,000 square foot facility accommodates a broad range of artistic activity. Selected artists-in-residence enjoy generous sized, private live/work studios complete with kitchen and bathroom. Artists-in-residence have 24-hour access to extensive installation and production spaces and the Okada Sculpture & Ceramics Facility, a 9,000 square foot industrial space used for large-scale sculpture fabrication. This independently driven atmosphere and communal environment encourage creative growth and experimentation to confront new challenges.

This is a process-based residency; there is no expectation or promise of an exhibition in our first-floor galleries. Artists who are interested in applying to all 2019 open call opportunities (January–April; May–August; and September–November) will be required to submit a separate application and application fee for each designated session. In the event an artist is selected for more than one session, the artist will select one session to attend.


January 23–April 19, 2019
May 22–August 16, 2019
September 18–November 15, 2019

Total Artists Selected: 30 (10 artists per residency session)
