The Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts in Omaha, Nebraska, has tapped Rachel Adams as its news chief curator and director of programs.

Previously senior curator of exhibitions with the University at Buffalo’s Art Galleries, Adams said in a statement, “I have admired Bemis from afar for many years and I look forward to advancing its artist-centric programs to the next level, alongside Bemis’s dedicated staff, artists-in-residence, visiting artists, and the supportive community of Omaha.”

While at the museum, Adams will oversee its exhibition program, which involves six to nine shows a year.
