Mural Completion Cerebration Saturday

December 2nd from 2-3pm 
the mural is near Nena's Grocery, 4903 S 24th St. and we will be meeting inside El Alamo restaurant 2 doors south of the mural.
Come, enjoy Aztec Dancers, traditional food and music, and a short talk about our new mural!

 

Our latest mural in the South Omaha Mural Project series, lead by Sedra Castaneda and David Manzanares, brightens up South 24th Street.  We had meetings with the community to explore and appreciate Aztec images and culture, and out of those workshops we created this depiction of various symbols, including the image of Tlaloc, whom the Aztec associated with rain and abundance.  It reflected our dreams for South Omaha to prosper, and to celebrate indigenous Mexican culture. Other images in the mural are symbols related to seed, land, rivers, Quetzalcóatl, and topography.

Star Seed Mural on Ardent Mills

OMAHA, Neb. — August 25, 2023 — The Starseeds mural project was led by Art + Infrastructure and facilitated by Omaha by Design, in partnership with Ardent Mills, and the Faith Foundation. This is the fourth project and 45th mural in a series of public art installations
completed by Art + Infrastructure.

Starseeds spans 15 silos, ranging from100 to 125 feet tall, and covers approximately 23,400 square feet on the east facade. This mural is the tallest and second largest in Omaha. A crew of professional muralists from A Midsummer’s Mural painted it, alongside lead artist, Sarah Rowe.

Rowe is an interdisciplinary artist of Lakota and Ponca descent based in Omaha. Her design
honors the mission and community-centered work of Ardent Mills while also referencing local
Indigenous storytelling. In Starseeds, there are songbirds in a wide Nebraska sky, flying over
growing grain and horses, flanked by sunlight and a thunderstorm.


Starseeds is the third in a series of murals on Ardent Mills silos. Murals already decorate the
Denver and Mankato, Minn. Mill locations.

We celebrated the completion of this mural October 21st!
