Michael Phipps Gallery

Omaha Public Library celebrates the return of community art to the Michael Phipps Gallery with a new exhibition opening March 4, 2022 that will celebrate the power of story. The Call For Artists from October 25 through December 17, 2021 drew excellent response from local artists. Thirty-five submissions were received and ten artists have been selected to exhibit their work over the course of the year. Special thanks to Shawnequa Linder, Ilaamen Pelshaw, and Kat Fackler for their service on the art selection jury.

This year marks twenty-five years of art exhibits in the Michael Phipps Gallery. Over the course of that time, the gallery has served as a tribute to the life and work of Phipps and his many contributions to Omaha Public Library and the community. It also represents Omaha Public Library’s commitment to connecting the community to local art and artists. With a year ahead that promises to be full of changes, that commitment is certain to carry on into the future.
