Darger HQ, a not-for-profit organization, connects Nebraska contemporary artists to the world by creating collaborative working opportunities between local artists and national and international artists with related practices, and develops partnerships that benefit artists by providing new means of support through combined private and non-profit sources.  Darger HQ also educates, enriches and exposes the community to some of the most innovative contemporary art being produced today.

Darger HQ has launched its latest project, Art Files of the Flatlanders (www.flatlanders.org). Art Files of the Flatlanders provides a place for critical dialogue on the visual arts in Nebraska, as well as a calendar of visual arts events occurring throughout the state.

 Darger HQ is located at 1716 South 13th Street and Hickory in the historic renovated Italian Grocery store originally built in 1887.
