New north omaha murals project mural in florence

On August 6th we unveiled our newest addition to the North Omaha Murals Project with a large-scale mural in the Florence neighborhood. 

Located at North 30th & State Streets, the mural site is a natural welcome wall for anyone coming into the Florence, the 'historical heart' of Omaha. Lead Artist Christine Stormberg worked with community members to create a new work that paid homage to the community and its many histories and welcomed visitors to the neighborhood. 

Check out the completed work - and catch the view from our friends at Harold's Koffee House.

SUPPORT

 

please take a moment to share your thoughts!

 

We have created a survey -- Pathways of Engagement -- to begin a dialogue with residents living in Omaha about the barriers to arts access they might currently face. The results of the survey will help shape many of our programs as we continue to grow and evolve. With our expanded space and improved resources, we are truly excited to have an opportunity to better connect with our neighbors—and the greater Omaha community at large.

We would sincerely appreciate your input!
