Ashlars , 2013

by Charles Fisher

 

Mediums: Paint, Aluminum

Location: Downtown; 202 South 20th Street Courtyard of the Scottish Rite

Owner: Scottish Rite

Additional Information: The artist's inspiration for this piece was the Masonic concept of the Rough Ashlar and the Perfect Ashlar. Using the symbolism of the medieval stone masons who traveled Europe building the great cathedrals, the ashlars are central to Freemasonry. The rough ashlar represents an imperfect stone hewn from the quarry and the perfect ashlar, represents the same stone, after the craftsman has carved the stone. In Freemasonry, the ashlars represent the symbolic journey from imperfection toward perfection through education, our own work, and faith. Every Lodge, whether it is in Nebraska or elsewhere in the United States, or any Masonic Lodge in the world, will prominently have a rough and perfect Ashlar in the room to remind members of that symbolic journey.

Bacon , 2010

by M. Brady Clark

 

Mediums: Mural, Mixed Media

Location: Downtown; Grain Silo 3417 Vinton Street Omaha, NE

Owner: Emerging Terrain

Series: Stored Potential

Additional Information: M. Brady Clark’s image is striking, simple, and speaks volumes about the Midwest. Although it isn’t the ‘beef’ Nebraska is most identified with, nor is it condoned by vegetarian friends, it is nonetheless symbolic and representative of the place and certainly the landscape. M. Brady’s ‘Bacon’ is less about specific species of animal, but more about place, consumption, and culture. According to M. Brady, “My work is simply to use my God-given gift to make things better and more beautiful.” Representing Bacon at nearly 80′ tall, on a grain elevator, might be the perfect combination of literal (grain transfer to animal protein) combined with scale to create abstract beauty.

Blue Cube , 2005

by Justin Stewart; Michael Todd

 

Mediums: Steel

Location: Downtown, Hilton | Qwest Center; Qwest Center Corner of Douglas and 10th

Owner: Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts

Series: Art 4 Omaha

Additional Information: The Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts created the Artist-in-Industry Steel Collaboration Project with Valmont Industries and Qwest Center Omaha as a way to bring dynamic contemporary art directly to the public. Forty-one artists submitted proposals to the Bemis Center’s national sculpture competition. This piece was created by R. Justin Stewart. The Artist-in-Industry Steel Collaboration Project was made possible by Valmont Industries, who donated resources, materials, studio workspace, access to machinery and fabrication assistance to the sculptors. Most notably, Valmont’s highly-trained technicians Tyler Pearce and Randy Banghart enabled the artists to realize their sculptures at six-times larger than their proposed models, and their expertise enabled the resulting public art to coordinate perfectly with the architecture and atmosphere of Qwest Center Omaha.
