Hope , 2011

by James Carpenter


Mediums: Steel, Mixed Media, LED Lights

Location: Mid-Town; UNMC Campus, 42nd and Emile It is west of the Harold M. and Beverly Maurer Center for Public Health. It is located on what was formerly 40th Street midway between Dewey Avenue and Emile Street.

Owner: University of Nebraska Medical Center

Additional Information: This piece of art -- which was paid for entirely by private donation -- is part of overall plans for UNMC's academic campus. Omaha philanthropists Ruth and Bill Scott made the lead donation on this piece. The tower – the first artistic piece done by world-renowned artist James Carpenter in Nebraska – is considered a key component in UNMC’s academic campus. The tower was designed to reflect the beautiful effects that occur in the Nebraska sky. It combines stainless steel and natural light to embody UNMC’s scientific character and the transient qualities of Nebraska’s skies. If it’s a bright sunny day, it will appear to shimmer. At dusk, it will reflect the variety of colors that are in the sky. In many places in Nebraska, the clouds and sky seem to merge with the ground and Carpenter wanted to capture that effect with the piece.

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.

Learning to Fly , 2005

by Matt Lowe


Mediums: Steel

Location: Hilton | Qwest Center; North side of the Qwest Center 455 N. 10th Street

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 Matt Lowe. “Learning to Fly” is based upon the notion of flight or motion. The sculpture’s frame-like structure is similar to the skeletal frame used by the Wright Brothers in designing the Kitty Hawk. The box slipcovers that fit over the frame are patterned after traditional box kites. The form’s upward motion is purposeful and vertically unfolds into space. The sculpture’s worshipful posture emulates openness and movement. The colors chosen reflect the colors of sky at dawn, a time that represents promise and of hope for things yet undiscovered.
