Bemis Center’s Benefit Art Auction + Concert is Omaha’s largest and most beloved celebration of contemporary art. More than 200 local, regional, and national artists participate in the Auction, choosing between 50-100% commission on the sale of their works. All other proceeds are reinvested into Bemis Center’s three core programs-Residency, Exhibitions, and Public Programs-that infuse our region with new art and ideas year-round through a regular schedule of free programming.
This year, with an expanded footprint to include outside food and beverage service, mobile bidding, and live music at LOW END, Bemis Center's music venue, we aim to maintain social distancing and bring our community together for a celebration that raises critical resources for Bemis and participating artists.
