Hot Shops Fall Fundraiser

October 20 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Enjoy a relaxed evening with some of the region’s most celebrated artists and show your support for the Hot Shops at our Fall Fundraiser!

Proceeds from the event support Hot Shops’ unique vision to “be the spark that helps build a more open and creative community,” and ensures the more than 90 artists who comprise Omaha’s largest artist collective can continue their work in one of the area’s most historic locations.

This event is a chance to experience art and the fiery creative processes that are unique to the Hot Shops Art Center. See bronze pouring and glassblowing, participate in hands-on activities such as Raku, collaborative painting, and other make-and-take projects. There will be live music, a Day of the Dead Gallery Exhibition featuring work from our resident artists and other fall-themed creative fun throughout the building.
