The Nebraska Mural is a statewide community mural project. Lead Artist, Rebecca Van Ornam, travelled to towns across Nebraska to get ideas for the mural and with help from South Omaha community members and artists Richard Harrison, Mike Giron, Hugo Zamorano, and Quin Slovek a design was created and presented to the community. The design was then projected up onto the 3,600 sq ft wall and the community was invited to come and paint the first brush strokes on the wall. The five artists and their apprentice, Alondra Gonzalez, have been working on the mural since the end of July. The response from the community has been amazing, the mural faces the busy 36th and Q intersection and adorns the wall of a very popular grocery store, The Supermercado Nuestra Famila. The mural team will be dedicating the mural with a live band, food, and small presentation. The Dedication Ceremony will be held October 21, 2017 from 2-4pm at the mural site. All are welcome to come and celebrate the completion of the largest community mural in Nebraska!
