We ( Richard Harrison, Rebecca Harrison, Sarah Tracy, Leavenworth and Ford Birth Site Neighborhood Associations , Nash-Finch Co…and I) will receive official recognition for our work on the Avanza mural on Park Avenue! There are two events. The first is the City of Omaha Planning Department’s “Art of Community Development” celebration, which will be March 27th at the Tip Top Building from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Theaster Gates will be speaking and then awards presented. At the second event, honorees will be acknowledged by the Governor at the State Capitol at 10:00 a.m. on April 2nd.
Other honorees are Liittleton Alston for the Musicians at Dream Plaza, Urban Village Development, and RDG for the “Tree of Life” on South 24th Street.
Listening to the other stories of people’s difficulties in/out of the work force, I know I am extremely lucky. Hopefully, our mural ideas might help to boost the local economy. Check out the minute-long mention about Richard and I. It’s about 21 minutes into Jan.8 “The Story”.
