Permanent Collection

The spacious common areas of the Center display works by previous visual art residents. Books, manuscripts and musical recordings by former writers and composers are available to current residents and visitors. This permanent collection of over 300 works of art, literature, and music continues to grow as each artist is invited, but not obligated, to donate a piece of work made during their residence.

A selection of the permanent collection artworks from the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts is available to tour educational venues in Nebraska and the region. The exhibition entitled The Residents: Artworks from the KHN Permanent Collection was recently on display at the Hastings College Art Gallery in Hastings, Nebraska from November 3 to December 12, 2014.
