Welcome to the Nebraska Arts Council website! Whether you are interested in applying for a grant or simply looking for information, we hope our website will make it easy for you to find what you’re looking for.
The Nebraska Arts Council is devoted to a mission that includes, among several key points, serving as a catalyst to connect people through the arts and creative concepts. Especially in these more socially distant times, we are not as able to connect in the arts world as normal. To achieve this goal regardless, we are implementing a new program by organizing an online Nebraska Artist showcase to highlight one artist a month from the NAC touring roster, teaching roster and Individual Artist Fellowship.
Atiim Jones is a Minneapolis born street photographer based in Omaha, Nebraska. In 2010, he began photographing strangers in the Old Market District of Omaha, Nebraska and in 2011 created "Crossroads" a photographic documentary of people in the Old Market District and surrounding area. It has since become one of the largest photography projects in the world. His work has been shown in galleries in Omaha and National Media Outlets such as Cosmopolitain, Yahoo, MSN, The Huffington Post and the NBC Today Show.
