ART+ INFRASTRUCTURE is a public art project focused on adding vibrant art to lonely underpasses, quiet passageways, and often-forgotten structures.
Art matters in Omaha, especially now. And putting local artists to work in the current climate is vital to the health of our community. Thriving cities throughout the nation have successfully added vibrancy and improved public perception through art. We can, too.
Our goal is to connect the dots between Omaha’s ordinary, infrastructure-heavy areas and its most desirable and engaged neighborhoods, making the passage from one area to another more enticing, safe, and even delightful.
By beautifying Omaha’s “in-between spaces” we hope that neighborhoods will become more connected, residents will feel safer, and visitors will experience moments of joy in this city we call home.
Now Arriving: Art+ ORBT
ART+ INFRASTRUCTURE is excited to announce its first series of installations in partnership with Metro.
ORBT is Omaha Rapid Bus Transit, a new service from Metro that will unite smart technology and streamlined travel for faster, more frequent public transportation. Enhanced stations, spacious vehicles, and travel upgrades will connect more people, more frequently.
ORBT represents the biggest transit investment the region has seen in decades. It will make Omaha more competitive with other metropolitan areas by attracting talented employees and innovative businesses. It will increase mobility, save money, boost development, reduce emissions, and connect the region.
ART+ INFRASTRUCTURE has enlisted 17 local muralists to further enhance stations along the route with original, site-painted artworks on the 23 ORBT stations.
The Omaha metro is graced with exceptional artistic talent. ART+ INFRASTRUCTURE is proud to partner with this most inspiring collection of creative individuals. Learn more about each artist by clicking here.
