House3 , 2010

by Bruce Frasier

 

Mediums: Steel, Stone

Location: Gene Leahy Mall; Gene Leahy Mall , near the water, Farnam Street side of the Mall, east of 13th Street

Owner: City of Omaha (Parks Recreation)

Series: Take A Seat

Additional Information: Sponsored by Bruce Frasier Architects and Artisan Stone Company. Our inspiration comes from the simplest form and idea of a house; four walls, a pitched roof, and a place for shelter. Stone cubes allow for various viewing angles and seating positions amongst a rhythm of metal houses. The houses provide a sense of separation for multiple users; an armrest, a backrest, or a shaded place for man’s best friend. Each unit is offset from the next 6” to create a pattern much like a house-lined street. The red color was chosen to compliment the green landscape. Black and red granite chips in the concrete blend with the red houses to create a unified brutalist design. Wood cube forms are made to the exact shape, poured with concrete, mixed with black and red granite chips for color, once cured, the concrete is lightly sandblasted to create a soft texture. Each finished cube is anchored to the concrete slab with a ¾” coil and epoxy. The joint between the concrete slab and cube is filled with a vulkem based sealant. Each cube weighs approximately 500 lbs. The houses are ¼” thick metal bent to shape. A 1/8” thick coating of rubberized truck bed liner spray is adhered to all surfaces of the house. The coating is soft to the touch and UV protected so the color never fades. Each house is anchored to the concrete slab with four anchor bolts and acorn caps.

Korea-Vietnam Peace Memorial , 1976

by Keith James; John Snider

 

Mediums: Bronze, Brick

Location: Mid-Town; Omaha’s Memorial Park, 60th & Underwood Avenue Located directly to the south of the WWII Memorial in Memorial Park.

Owner: City of Omaha

Additional Information: The Korean-Vietnam Peace Memorial Committee, chaired by Korean War veteran William Ramsey, organized the project and fund-raising for the sculpture. The committed decided it should be a peace memorial rather than a war memorial because American servicemen have always fought to preserve peace rather than for conquest. The initial contribution of $1,000 (toward the $15,000 cost for the sculpture) was donated by Omaha Post 1 American Legion. Actor John Wayne sent a check and many families of servicemen contributed.
