Bemis Center For Contemporary Arts


You make THE Difference

We have had an incredible 30th anniversary year. In 2010, we launched the $2.6 million Building | Bemis capital campaign and as we plan for a new year of supporting exceptional talent, I am so proud to say that in 2011, we have achieved our goal. The Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts looks better than ever and the great success of the campaign is a testament to our community's belief that artists matter. Together, we have made incredible strides to improve and expand our facility and in turn, serve more artists who enrich our city and improve our quality of life.

Your support is needed now more than ever. We have reached our campaign goal but the Bemis Center has not stopped growing! The capital improvements made this year have created even more opportunities for our Artist-in-Residence, Exhibitions and Community Arts programs to directly support artists and serve our community. Your support will allow the Bemis Center to sustain our growing programs and build on the momentum of this spectacular year.

This holiday season please consider giving a gift to Bemis. If you are currently a Bemis member or sponsor, let me take this opportunity to thank you again for your contribution. We could not have reached our 30th year without your help. If you have not yet become a supporter, why not consider doing so now? There has never been a better time to pledge your support to the Bemis Center, to help us achieve our mission to support exceptional talent and join us in celebrating 30 years of contemporary art in Omaha.

Thank you for making our 30th anniversary year such a success. I wish you a happy holiday season and I hope you will join me in looking forward to the spectacular lineup of Bemis Center exhibitions and events that are in store for 2012...
