Bancroft Street Market Welcomes Video Installations by UNO Students
Omaha - Works by 18 student artists from the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) will take center stage for one night only: Friday, Nov. 19 at the Bancroft Street Market, 2702 S. 10th St.
The exhibition – Rear Window 2.0: Spectacles of Hope – features video works that wonder, inspire, engage and provoke viewers to take part in the revitalization of 10th and Bancroft Streets in Omaha. The video installations investigate how hope, spectacle and neighborhood engagement can come together to transform a sense of place.
The Nov. 19 event runs from 7 to 11 p.m. at the Bancroft Street Market. It is free and open to the public.
“The Bancroft Street Market offers a platform for creative exchange and cultural production, and over the last five years has had a tremendous impact on the neighborhood and the arts community in Omaha,” said Jody Boyer, UNO arts instructor. “This is a fantastic opportunity for UNO students. This exhibition gives them a platform to take part in the community revitalization that is occurring at 10th and Bancroft through the grass roots efforts of artists and neighbors working together."
The Bancroft Street Market sponsors a variety of activities to bring cultural involvement to the Omaha community. The facility is a flexible, open-floor-plan market that features both indoor and outdoor space that is available for small businesses and exhibitions.
For more information on the Nov. 19 exhibition, contact Jody Boyer at email@example.com or (712) 309-5603; or visit www.bancroftstreetmarket.com for details on the Bancroft Street Market.
