Gotta Have Arts Exhibit on Display at Hot Shops Open House

The Gotta Have Arts exhibit will be on display this weekend during the Hot Shops Open House Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 1-2. The event is free and open to the public. Visitors are encouraged to bring a nonperishable food item and drop it in the food bank drop box near the main entrance.

Gotta Have Arts – a collaboration of WhyArts and Gotta Be Me – provides adults with physical and mental challenges with opportunities to produce and sell their own artwork. All sales proceeds go to the artist. This initiative is made possible by a grant to WhyArts from the Lincoln Financial Foundation.

The Hot Shops Art Center is located at  1301 Nicholas Street in downtown Omaha. The open house runs Dec. 1 from noon to 8:00pm and Dec. 2 from noon to 5pm. For more information, visit
