Omaha has a pretty impressive art scene, and a community devoted to ensuring that the public has access to as much art as possible at no charge. And what’s really cool is that most of the exhibits that come to town are not, like, the kind that no one but elite art snobs preach about while sniffing and swirling their cabernet (at least that’s what I imagine art snobs do). They’re really cool exhibits that even if you don’t totally understand the nuance and meaning behind every piece, anyone from age 5 to 105 could enjoy.
One exhibit that’s in town right now is at the KANEKO, located in the Old Market. It’s called light, and it’s one of the most visually stunning afternoons I’ve ever spent. Pieces include what I refer to as a grown up Lite Brite, an immersive room that made me feel like I was floating in space, and amazing sculptures that I still can’t quite figure out if they were optical illusions or fully built out.
My pictures don’t do the exhibit justice, and because of photography restrictions, I had to take them on my iPhone, but my friend Sarah and I had a really lovely experience at light. If you’re in the Omaha area, or somewhere close to it, I definitely recommend checking it out! It’s free and open to the public through March. I know this is a short post, but I'd prefer to let my photos do most of the talking for me this week.
