Organized in 1960 as a non-profit organization, the Fremont Area Art Association was organized to promote the appreciation and development of visual art in and around the Fremont area. It has been an active participant in the cultural life of the community and area for over 50 years. Membership is composed of art supporters and appreciators as well as active artists ranging from successful professionals to “Sunday painters”. The art association is supported by membership, voluntary contributions, and grants from the Nebraska Arts Council and Fremont area foundations.
