 Apprentice Program

 Our apprentice muralists will learn how to create a public community-based mural from start to finish. They are expected to attend community design workshops, participate in the sketching and designing process, and help paint the mural on the wall.

 We love growing our team of muralists by adding individuals that are goal oriented and collaborative. Here are our chosen artists for this mural project:

The first week of July we are visited towns across Nebraska to collect stories and memories about what makes the state special in general and especially about the way people in the small towns visited South Omaha for trading livestock and all the novelties of visiting a larger city.  In this photo we set up a tent by the mural Rebecca painted in Murdock on their museum.  You can learn more about that here.  At this event we learned that ranchers often loaded their cattle on the train and then rode in the caboose with other ranchers to South O.  We also learned recently when truckers delivered cattle to the South Omaha livestock exchange they were often stopped up back to 84th street (that’s 50 blocks!)  The time in Murdock and the parade really reminded us how special the folks in Nebraska are.  We painted some of the kids faces and talked to a lot of friends from the time we spent there to design and paint their mural.  Great folks.  And we talked about the changes in the scale of farming and the impact that is having on folks. A great experience!
