The National Arts Program® was established in 1982 to identify, showcase, and reward the visual artistic talent in America. The program sponsors 82 venues in 38 states. Coordinated by the AmeriCorps staff at the Lincoln Arts Council, this is the seventh year Lincoln has had the chance to offer this opportunity to our community. Every year, the National Arts Program invites City of Lincoln Employees and Lincoln Public Schools and their family members to participate in this exhibition opportunity. The National Arts Program is designed to give visual artists, at all skill levels, an uninhibited opportunity to exhibit their work in a professional manner and to compete for cash prizes. This exhibit is judged by professional artists and visual art professionals in Amateur, Intermediate, Professional, Teen and Youth classifications, and it is free to all.
This year the program has 66 registered participants who will exhibit 110 pieces of artwork. Eligibility for this program requires that the artwork has been created within the last 3 years and fits into one of the six categories which include: Painting, Works on Paper, Photography, Sculpture, Craft, and Mixed Media.
