The Bemis Center is proud to present Another Nebraska, an exhibition of the 2010 Nebraska Arts Council Individual Artist Fellowship awardees. The nine exhibiting artists work across myriad media and contemporary art strategies. Their work spans kinetic sculpture, conceptually driven installation, meditative paintings and drawings, iconoclastic uses of clay and glass and exuberant tapestries woven with technical mastery. Collectively, the works and practices of these nine artists represent the crucial role living artists play in expanding the conventions of our state. Artists bring political nuance, social humor, intellectual rigor, cultural tolerance and a visual pulse to Nebraska. The exhibition highlights the necessity of public support for living artists and recognizes the vitality of contemporary art production in Nebraska.
