What We Do

The Union for Contemporary Art is committed to strengthening the creative culture of the greater Omaha area by providing direct support to local artists and increasing the visibility of contemporary art forms in our community. In every endeavor, we strive to unite artists and the community to inspire positive social change in North Omaha.

Interesting Info
  • The Union was founded on the belief that the arts can be a vehicle for social justice and greater civic engagement.
  • We engage the community through seven programs: Inside/Outside Fellowship, Exhibition, Youth, Co-Op, Performing Arts, Abundance Garden & Neighborhood Arts
  • Since January 2017, we have welcomed over 18,000 people to engage with the arts on North 24th and Lake Streets.
