Artist Opportunity: 6th Annual Exhibit of The National Arts Program

The National Arts ProgramNever hide your talent! The National Arts Program® is designed to give all visual artists - at all skill levels - an uninhibited opportunity to exhibit their work in a professional manner, and also to compete for cash prizes. Sponsored by the National Arts Program Foundation in support and cooperation with the City of Lincoln and Lincoln Public Schools, the exhibit is judged by professional artists and visual art professionals in Amateur, Intermediate, Professional, Teen and Youth classifications, and it is free to all who qualify. Don't miss this chance to be recognized for your creativity, and be proud of your art!

The National Arts Program invites City of Lincoln Employees and their family members to participate in this exhibition opportunity. And, new to 2012, the program has been expanded! We also are inviting Lincoln Public Schools staff and their family members to participate this year!
