Public Art Omaha App

The Public Art Commission in collaboration with Omaha by Design has developed a Public Art Omaha mobile phone app for iPhone and Android. Users can find the nearest public art, take art tours, even suggest pieces for inclusion. Visit http://publicartomaha.org/pages/contact/mobile-apps for instructions on how to download the app.   

 

Downtown Omaha Art Walk

 

In the spring of 2009, the Public Art Commission organized the City’s first Downtown Omaha Art Walk, a tour of 22 pieces throughout the downtown area. Locations include the Gene Leahy Mall, the Hilton Hotel, and the Qwest Center and more.  

The entire tour takes about an hour to complete, so download the brochure and follow the instructions to enjoy Omaha’s art. Download the Omaha Art Walk Brochure.
