Opening Reception
: Friday, December 14, 2018; 6:00 - 8:00 PM


Join our 2018 Grant Recipients for a group exhibition that highlights their work and contributions to Omaha’s evolving creative landscape. Angie Seykora, Topher Booth, Marie Amthor-Schuett, Amanda Smith, Dieudonne Manirakiza (Umoja Choir), and members of the The Study will be in attendance to discuss the ways in which being awarded Public Project and Artist Support Grants have impacted their careers, immediate communities, and the greater Omaha area. Guests are encouraged to ask questions, spend time with the exhibition, and fully engage with these exceptional artists and their work.


Amplify’s Artist Grants program reiterates our mission to make Omaha a place where artists are able to live, work, and thrive. Awarded to individual artists and public projects, grant money contributes to the dynamic growth of a community rich in disciplinary and cultural diversity. Awards activate public spaces in meaningful ways and become catalysts for change in the careers of individual artists.

Special thanks to the Pape Family Foundation and Annette and Paul Smith for their generous support and making the 2018 Grants Program possible.

Amplify's Essentials Fund is made up of two separate categories - Emergency Grants and Micro Grants. This pot of money was instated to increase access to professional tools and respond to unforeseen events that negatively impact an artist’s practice.

On December 2nd, Amplify will begin accepting applications for Micro Grants which are one-time grants for capacity-building support items like supplies, research materials, travel, business cards, and professional development (excluding Amplify Arts Programs).

Join Amplify staff for a special session of Working Artist Wednesday dedicated to demystifying the application process. Get a rundown of what you'll need to apply, eligibility requirements, and a first hand look at how we jury grant applications. Questions are welcome. Please RSVP to attend.
