Event description

Description

Join fellow art lovers for a casual evening of exploration and entertainment. Artistic and musical insights are presented in the intimate setting of the UNO Art gallery. Engage in conversation with the guest artists during the wine and goodies reception that follows. All proceeds go directly to the scholarship fund for UNO students in studio art, art history, and art education.

Our community is enriched by the power of educational resources and those who are the product of our schools. In conjunction with the UNO Art Gallery juried exhibition of Art & Art History graduates and alumni, the artists for this program, a father/daughter duo, were selected from the juried finalists. Our musician is an alumni of the UNO School of Music.
