Join Omaha-born artist Angela Drakeford for a first viewing of her installation, Homecoming (on view through August 17). In her solo exhibition, Drakeford invites viewers to reflect on the power of plants to preserve the human spirit and the home garden as a place of refuge from racialized trauma. Drakeford brings together plants, vintage furniture, textiles, and digital media to create an enchanting environment inspired by her love of nature and the different places she has called home.

Homecoming is organized in conjunction with Native Omaha Days (July 29–August 5, 2019), a biennial homecoming event celebrating the memories, culture, and community spirit of North Omaha.
