IMFA Faculty Leon Johnson Selected as Artist in Residence at Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts
IMFA Associate for Critical Engagement, Leon Johnson, has been selected as Artist in Residence at Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts in Omaha, Nebraska.
The spirit and programs of the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts are based on the conviction that exceptional talent deserves to be supported. Our practical commitment to this belief is achieved by providing well-equipped studio spaces, living accommodations and a monthly stipend to artists who are awarded residencies. These artists come from around the world to work within a supportive community of like-minded people. The atmosphere and environment offer an ideal situation for creative growth and experimentation and encourage artists to confront new challenges.
The Bemis Center was recently recognized as one of the “Top 10 residencies around the globe” by ArtInfo, and Jane Alexander, the former head of the National Endowment for the Arts, has called the Bemis Center “one of the great treasures of its kind in the country.”
