Plant an Idea

For the budding artisan or the seasoned practitioner, this collection of free resources can realize your potential or simply plant an idea.

This week we are recommending a worthwhile and competitive curatorial residency program through the Omaha-based Bemis Center for Contemporary Artists, the very first program of its kind within the state of Nebraska. Applications for the year-long residency are due August 29th.

This program offers well-versed curators the opportunity to impart their knowledge of international contemporary art practices to the local cultural fabric of Old Market, Omaha. Through a firm engagement with the residents and daily workings of the town, curators will organize exhibitions and public programs that serve to enrich an already active artistic landscape. Applicants will act as ambassadors for the esteemed Bemis Center and will be tasked to complete independent research, produce scholarly and didactic texts, and lead intellectual discussions, along with other duties.

There is no fee to apply. The Bemis Center provides free lodging, utilities, and gallery space and promises reliable allowances for transportation, relocation, and research.
