The Governor’s Residence Exhibition program was started in 1992 by then Nebraska First Lady Diane Nelson. Since that time, NAC has partnered with the Governor's Residence to showcase the work of more than 200 Nebraska artists. This unique space allows civic leaders, citizens, school children and other visitors to acknowledge and appreciate the diversity of statewide artistic talent. Eligible artwork must be two-dimensional, suitable for hanging and have appropriate content for the venue. Curated group shows will be considered. Schools and other organizations that focus on visual arts education are encouraged to apply.
The next artist application period for the Governor's Residence will be open March 1, 2018, deadline May 1, 2018.
