The Actors Procession , 1989

by Milt Heinrich


Mediums: Metal

Location: Mid-Town; Omaha Community Playhouse 6915 Cass

Owner: Omaha Community Playhouse

Additional Information: These three evocative figures represent the world of theater. The figure on the left is distinctly Greco-Roman - a reflection of the classical European theater tradition that may evoke Sophocles or Shakespeare, Sheridan or Shaw. The central image is of an Oriental female and is designed as a reminder that theater is an idiom common to all ages, all cultures and all people. The figure on the right is readily identifiable as Cervantes' Don Quixote. The fabled knight-errant welcomes playgoers, his lance indicating the entrance to the theater. Nearly 12,000 pounds of raw brass was used to create this sculpture which was a a gift of Marlene Jamrog and family in memory of longtime Playhouse friend, Jerry Jamrog. Completion of each sculpture required approximately 400 hours of work.

Mediums: Metal

Location: Mid-Town; Omaha Community Playhouse 6915 Cass

Owner: Omaha Community Playhouse

Additional Information: This brass mural focuses not on fully-realized characters, but on performers exploring their roles, honing their talents and endeavoring to perfect their craft. The image on the right is athletic and aggressive, conveying the strength, stamina and physical control that are essential tools for any performer. The two central images celebrate the dance - an integral element of live theater. The dancer's challenge is to make the difficult and demanding appear effortless. The figure on the lefts in in a "present" position, inviting patrons into the theater and guiding them towards the entrance.

Additional Information: This piece was donated to UNMC by Fred and Eve Simon. Fletcher Benton is well known for his large metal sculptures, many of which seem to defy gravity in their precariously balanced forms. At the same time, his early career as a commercial sign painter led him to an appreciation for the purity of the Roman alphabet and inspired him to create his own set of letters and numbers. These pieces can be found across the country.

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. Artist Renee Ledesma Hoover’s mural on the back wall of Jane’s Market was a community endeavor. She mentors Benson High School student Jasmine Ruch. They collaborated on a design with a woman, suggestive of Mother Nature as the trunk of a blossoming tree. Set against a pale blue sky, the tree is surrounded by intricately painted flowers, butterflies and abstract motif.
