Jul 10, 2017

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A new $100,000 grant will help support the Bemis Center's longstanding artist-in-residence program that offers space for an artist to create new work.

The Bemis Center says it received the grant from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

The Bemis Center has been bringing artists to Omaha as part of this program for more than 30 years.

The Bemis Center plans to use some of the grant money to upgrade the equipment in the contemporary art center's sculpture facility.
