Established in 2001, the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts (KHN) is a renowned Artist Residency program that supports established and emerging visual artists, writers, composers, and interdisciplinary artists from around the world. Uniquely housed in a residential prairie-style complex in Nebraska City, Nebraska. Residency awards are 2-8 weeks in length and include a weekly $100 stipend. Private accommodations and private studios. $35 application fee. Application deadlines annually are September 1st (Session 1) and March 1st (Session 2). Application deadline: March 1, 2020 for 2020 Session 2 (July 6 - December 18, 2020).
