Hot ShopsHot Shops Art Center
Bruning Sculpture, Hot Shops Pottery, and Crystal Forge make up the very heart of the Hot Shops Art Center, with the molten nature of their work giving it its “hot” name. We also house over 80 studio artists, as well as four gallery spaces, in our building complex located in downtown Omaha, just north of the Century Link Center at the corner of 13th and Nicholas. For complete info, please follow the General Info link above.

We've been pinned by the Omaha Convention and Visitors Bureau as one of Omaha's top attractions. Come down and see why!
