This Blows , May 2012

by Henry Novak

 

Mediums: Mural, Mixed Media

Location: Downtown; Grain Silo 3417 Vinton St. Omaha NE

Owner: Emerging Terrain

Series: Stored Potential Two

Additional Information: ‘This Blows’ by 12-year old Omaha native Hank Novak is a simple pen drawing of a dandelion on a vibrant yellow background. Cropped perfectly to interact with the gap in the silos, thus sending the seeds blowing into the Omaha horizon, the image was furthermore a strong jury selection because of Hanks explanatory poem about the innovative movement of dandelion seeds: THIS BLOWS Dandelion seeds Flying everywhere, Helicopters and airplanes Racing in the air. I see car commercials Almost all the time, Their MPG’s are a revolution But sometimes I wonder what Transportation would be like If we did not have evolution.


Time Lapse of Transportation , May 2012

by LeAnn Jensen

 

Mediums: Mural, Mixed Media

Location: Downtown; Grain Silo 3417 Vinton St. Omaha NE

Owner: Emerging Terrain

Series: Stored Potential Two

Additional Information: The banner created by Ms. Jensen is intended to highlight the changes in our modes of transportation. It is especially interesting to note how we have gradually adopted transportation methods requiring the burning of fossil fuels. From animal-powered transport, to human-powered devices such as the bicycle, to the steam engine, and finally, the combustion engine. To the artist, it is no great surprise that the use of fossil fuels for transport has been a significant contributor to the altered composition of the Earth’s atmosphere.


Totem , 2004

by Catherine Ferguson

 

Mediums: Steel

Location: Downtown; W. Dale Clark Library 215 S. 15th St.

Owner: City of Omaha

Additional Information: Totem pays homage to the prehistoric people of central North America who facilitated their economic, social and religious community life by building massive earthen sculptures. The animals shapes depicted in Totem are recorded in the Iowa Effigy Mound Manifestation: An Interpretive Model by R. Clark Mallam, University of Iowa Office of the State Archaeologis; circa 1976. The effigy mounds were earthen representations of mammals, reptiles, birds and geometric forms along the Upper Mississippi River built by hunting and gathering people prior to 1300 A.D. While carefully replicating the ancient shapes of the earth effigy mounds, the contemporary Totem was fabricated of aluminum with the aid of computers and the calculations of engineers. Totem was commissioned by the Omaha Public Art Commission with funds donated by the J. Doe Project.


Trainscape , May 2012

by Tim Guthrie

 

Mediums: Mural, Mixed Media

Location: Downtown; Grain Sile 3417 Vinton St. Omaha, NE

Owner: Emerging Terrain

Series: Stored Potential Two

Additional Information: Tim Guthrie’s train went through many iterations ranging from abstract and conceptual models to representational illustrations. Ultimately, he settled on something more illustrative, but as stripped down and stylized as possible without leaving the image unrecognizable by abandoning the original form. Even though train tracks are generally unbending through most of the midwest, the illustration mimics the curves of some roads and rivers as well as agricultural patterns seen in fields in the Midwest. The title ‘Trainscape’ refers to how the railroad connecting East and West Coasts vastly changed commerce, and revolutionizing the Midwest in profound ways. Rather than focus on a single subject, however, such as early passenger travel, or the current emphasis on agricultural shipping, the train cars are intentionally ambiguous so the viewer can interpret what is being transported. The same is true for the agriculture represented. Although it would have been natural to render fields of corn or soybeans, the crops are stylized so they are equally ambiguous, since Nebraska is connected, via rail, to a region with a diversity of crops.
