The Burkholder Project, located in downtown Lincoln's Haymarket District, is a unique collection of 36 art and design studios with loft apartments and three levels of galleries, connected by a sunfilled atrium. The Project was designed and developed by artist Anne Burkholder, who bought the building in 1987. It was her idea to create a place where a community of artists would have excellent work spaces, as well as a support system of other creative people. The project also represents 40 regional Associated Artists in the Sampler Gallery on the lower level. The original building, built in 1914, was known as the Old Woods Brothers Office Building, which was the headquarters of several real-estate and agricultural businesses. Art thrives in this bright and exciting community in part because of the artists' interchange of ideas with one another and with the public. We invite you to join us, observe our creative processes, ask questions, learn about each of our art forms, browse through the galleries and visit the working studios and shops where you can see not only the finished works, but the works of art in progress. Enjoy your visit, and remember creativity takes concentration and unnecessary noise is a distraction. Our working hours are as diverse as our artwork. If a studio is closed the artist may be preparing for a show, painting on location, teaching or researching new projects. We hope you enjoy your visit and get to know us. We feature a new show monthly and look forward to seeing you again soon! -Via Burkholder Project's Facebook page
