Week Fifty Two

Bancroft Street Art Space event

Posted in Art news, general interest by sarahbakerhansen on 16 February 2009


I just got back from a visit to the Bancroft Street Art Space, on 10th and Bancroft streets – let me just say, first, that I love this space and the spirit that goes along with it. Now, on to more pressing business.

On Wednesday, Feb. 19 from 7-9 p.m., Joel Damon, curator of “Unwashed,” the space’s current exhibition, will be hosting an open forum and networking event. “It’s for people who want to create,” Damon said.

The first part of the event will be devoted to talking about ideas – any sort of idea – but with the overwhelming theme of continuing to improve Omaha’s underground art scene. Damon said he hopes to make connections with other people who want to be part of a space like Bancroft Street, or to just generally create discussion. “This is a chance to start moving,” he said.

The event is free and begins at 7 p.m. So far, about 100 people have signed up to attend, Damon said. Hope to see you there.
