The UNO Art Collection includes works of art created at, commissioned by, or collected by the University of Nebraska at Omaha and its predecessor the University of Omaha, from circa 1908 to the present. It includes painted portraits of university presidents, chancellors, officers, and others; paintings of university buildings, including conceptual art related to building construction; artwork formerly used as decorations in campus buildings; literary artwork; caricatures; and more. Some paintings and drawings are framed or matted. As of 2014, this collection consists primarily of two-dimensional artworks. This collection has not yet been further arranged or described.
