Studio Clips: Meet Nebraska Artists

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.
