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 has been on view at multiple galleries in Nebraska:
University of Nebraska at Omaha, forthcoming October 2017
Eistentrager-Howard Gallery, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, 2016
Stalder Gallery at the Falls City Library and Arts Center, Falls City, 2015
Hastings College Gallery, Hastings 2014.
Hastings College was the first time that any of the permanent collection artworks have been exhibited outside the walls of the Center’s home in Nebraska City.
