Neighborhood Arts

Through community-driven projects that focus on neighborhood-level relationship building, The Union's Neighborhood Arts initiative provides local artists with opportunities for professional growth and North Omaha residents, of all ages, with an array of opportunities to actively engage in creative practices, neighborhood rejuvenation, and building more positive community narratives through participation in the arts.

North Omaha Mural Project

Our North Omaha Mural Project connects local artists and communities to collaborate on public art that represents the spirit of the neighborhood. Launched in the summer of 2015, The Union has worked with youth groups, neighborhood associations, business districts, and neighbors to create murals throughout North Omaha.

In collaboration with Fabric Lab and Mount Moriah Missionary Baptist Church, The Union partnered on the creation of a new mural created by Joëlle Storet. Over two years, community members were invited to collaborate and design a new work that speaks to the ecumenical and historical significance of Black churches in our community.
