We love our public art. That's why we want to share it with others.
Public Art Omaha, a partnership of Omaha by Design and the Omaha Public Art Commission, was created to provide art lovers and art lovers in training with comprehensive access to our city's public art offerings. Some pieces are publicly funded, and others are the result of private donations. Taken together, they reflect a variety of styles and traditions from local, regional and national artists.
Use our database to view a sampling of these works by location, medium, artist and owner. Better yet, download the Public Art Omaha mobile app (click on the icons at www.publicartomaha.org) and visit them in person. The database will grow over time, so check back often to see what's been added.
We're amazed at what artists can do when they pair their ideas with the tools of their profession. We're also amazed at what public art can do for a community. In our case, it's helping us think more, feel more, value more, expect more.
We've got room for you - join us.
