Guerrero in Omaha now

Yesterday I visited El Museo to view the exhibit Guerrero which highlights the varied art works in seven local districts in this southwest Mexico district.  It is quite startling to see such a wide variety of styles in local areas just a few miles apart.  Palm hats, masks, and more showcase these important works.  For more, click on the poster.

 

 

Attention: Teachers and students

Join us in South Omaha for La Veinticuatro – the South 24th Walking Tour. Our 90-minute walk highlights history, architecture, arts, and more along the South 24th Historic District between L and O Streets.
This year we have accepted a grant from the South Omaha Historical Committee to host 500 students from grades 3 thru graduate school to take the tour at NO COST ( normally a $3-7.50/person value).
Groups can arrange tour days and times convenient to their schedules. For this offer we ask for a maximum of 30 students/teachers/chaperones per tour.

La Veinticuatro – in its 5th year of touring – is a project of Restoration Exchange Omaha.

To register contact tour coordinator Vince Furlong at 402-709-2586 or info@restorationexchange.com
