Welcome to Mangelsen's... Everything That Inspires!

Featured Local Artist Program

Featured Local Omaha Artist

Mangelsen's is a proud supporter of local art in the Omaha area!

Over the years, we have supported both visual and performance art. Mangelsen's is a  community partner with art organizations such as the Omaha Community Playhouse, Omaha Performing Arts, and the Young Artist Exhibit during the Summer Arts Festival in downtown Omaha.  Since 2005, Mangelsen's has hosted our annual Big Art Event featuring art from local artists and interactive art demonstrations. In 2016, with the help of local artist, Ray Esposito, we launched our monthly featured local artist program. Each month we'll highlight one local artist in our Framing Department, and on social media. 

The featured local artist program is simple:

Mangelsen’s will grant 8’ x 8’ space for the length of one month to the selected artist to display their original work in the Framing Department. The space is designed to be a free service for local artists to display original artwork. Mangelsen’s will not collect any commission associated with the sale of original art. Mangelsen's will provided the 8' x 8' wall space and slat wall hooks for hanging.

Selection Process:

Mangelsen’s reserves the right to view and approve the work before it is hung. We do ask that the artist keeps in mind that Mangelsen’s is a family oriented store and has young patrons. All art submitted must be work done personally by the individual.
