Homer at the Pizza Shoppe , 2009

by Watie White


Mediums: Mural

Location: Mid-Town; 6056 Maple Street

Owner: The Pizza Shoppe

Series: Benson Mural Project

Additional Information: In 2009, seven people gathered with the common purpose of transforming a portion of Benson’s environment through creative neighborhood projects. After much brainstorming they settled on a public art venture in the form of a mural project. The seven represented Leadership Omaha Class 31, itself a project of the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce. The group contacted Benson High School and 12 artists submitted their ideas. This piece was submitted by Andrew Forsman who took his inspiration from Homer’s “The Odyssey”, which he had just read in school. Artist Watie White brought Forsman’s vison to life. The result is a colossal wooden ship with a bright red mainsail amongst lively cobalt ocean waves. Three figures reach for help from the water, seven row the boat, a man is seemingly tied to the mast, a luminous red-hair womanly bodice paves the way (modeled after Pizza Shoppe owner, Amy Ryan). Other models include Pizza Shoppe employees.

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.

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.
