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 www.hotshopsartcenter.com/info/openhouse.html.
