Artist In Residence

At The Cornhusker, we've long prided ourselves on being a world-class destination for travelers and a quintessential Lincoln landmark. Woven throughout the cultural fiber of our hotel is a long-standing passion for the arts.

The Cornhusker's Artist-In-Residence

The Cornhusker's Artist-in-Residence program features a working art studio and gallery on the lobby level of our grand hotel. The studio is open to hotel guests and the public, and encourages visitors to interact with the artist, while watching the evolution of each piece of work firsthand.

The program serves as an extension of the hotel with the artist working hand-in-hand with hotel staff to both promote the program and provide a distinctly unique experience for guests and visitors of the property.

Cornhusker artists are expected to spend a minimum of 30 hours a week on-site, and will participate in First Friday Artwalks during their residency, along with a number of other events that occur. This residency is a one-of-a-kind experience to be on the forefront of Lincoln's art community with one of Nebraska's most revered hotels. Additionally, each Artist-in-Residence creates a legacy piece that will go on permanent display in the hotel.

Current Artist-In-Residence

Wendy Jane Bantam is The Lincoln Marriott Cornhusker Hotel's Fourth Artist-in-Residence. Bantam's paintings are inspired by her childhood growing up in the Mirage Flats on the western edge of the Nebraska Sandhills. As a girl, she imagined surrealistic worlds from the natural world. Each painting hides clues to the narrative of an unfolding story. A teacher and lecturer on creative and critical thinking with training in performance art and the visual arts, Bantam has held residences in Turkey, Indonesia, England, and across the United States.
