When the arts are accessible and reflect all people and cultures in a community, they can be a gateway for improved educational and social outcomes, as well as a primary ingredient in creating healthy, connected neighborhoods. For a region of our size, Omaha-Council Bluffs has an engaged arts and culture scene that offers world-class museums, music, and art.

Access to the Arts

In Douglas County, there are significantly more arts organizations than in neighboring Pottawattamie and Sarpy Counties. However, the arts organizations are predominantly located in central and downtown Omaha.
