about West Nebraska Arts Center


The West Nebraska Arts Center (WNAC) is a cultural non-profit organization committed to education, awareness and excellence in the arts, serving the North Platte Valley Region. 

The West Nebraska Arts Center was selected by the Nebraska Tourism Commission to be one of eight arts attractions featured in the 2013 Nebraska Passport program’s Picture the Scene tour.  In celebration of this honor, this exhibit is tailor-made for travelers.  The West Nebraska Summer Art Sale features “travel-size” (no larger than 20”) original artwork created by local  and regional artists.  All pieces are cash and carry, meaning you buy it, you can take it with you immediately.  We want to encourage more road trips to western NE and we want visitors to take some amazing artwork home with them.


The Nebraska Arts Council, a state agency, has supported this program through its matching grants program funded by the Nebraska Legislature, the National Endowment for the Arts and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment.  Visit www.nebraskaartscouncil.org for information on how the Nebraska Arts Council can assist your organization, or how you can support the Nebraska Cultural Endowment.
