Statewide Programs

The Nebraska Arts Council sponsors arts education programs with statewide reach by partnering with other arts and educational organizations. These programs are additional to the Artists in Schools/Communities residencies, Arts Learning Projects and other grant programs. These efforts are made possible by support from the Nebraska Cultural Endowment and allow the NAC to work toward its goal of making the arts a basic part of education in Nebraska.

  • The Lied’s Arts Across Nebraska program focuses on public performances and educational workshops with partner venues and schools across the state.

  • The University of Nebraska Omaha is developing a Standards Consortium to create a strategic plan and pilot a professional development workshop that will promote the newly approved Nebraska Fine Art Standards to educators throughout the state.

  • The Sheldon Museum of Art's Statewide Exhibition program delivers interactive educational tours for students in exhibition gallery settings, and led by regional artist educators. 

  • The Museum of Nebraska Art (MONA) and Ganzel Group Communications are co-producing a website that features Nebraska’s newly adopted visual arts educational standards through streaming videos of artist interviews.
