Panel + kith: August 21, 6-9PM Refuge is a temporary public art project at the corner of 25th and Lake Streets. This project is a 1500 square foot garden on an empty lot. The garden serves as public space and a lifeline for migrating birds and insects. As urban decay gives way to demolition and open lots of lawn, Refuge seeks to reimagine what might be possible as a more valuable land use solution in a location near the Missouri river, a major migration route.

It's hard to improve on a great thing... but The Union's $100 Art Sale intends to do just that with our two-day fundraiser. Not only will you be able to score a great piece of art for an incredible price, but our two-day event includes stellar entertainment, drool-worthy raffles, great food + drinks and the chance to create art with some of Omaha's most innovative artists. All that -- plus a chance to help The Union support our local arts community while working for greater social justice in North Omaha!
Twice a year, artists from the greater Omaha area will be selected through juried process to serve as Fellows. Once selected, the artists receive the following benefits in exchange for their commitment to “pay it forward” by serving at least 25 hours of community service in North Omaha.
Get to know our 2014 Fall Fellows: Mark Powers, Danny Sullivan, April Faith-Slaker, Luke Polipnick and Zedeka Poindexter...
