Omaha Summer Arts Festival


The Omaha Summer Arts Festival is just around the corner. In fact, let me give you the dates:

Friday June 26th, 11am-8pm

Saturday June 27th, 11am-8pm

Sunday June 28th, 11am-5pm

And even more importantly, let me tell you where I'll be :)
I am artist/exhibitor #82, which means in front of the library, vaguely the intersection of 14th and Farnam, in downtown Omaha, Nebraska.

I have been fielding a few questions regarding which paintings I will be bringing :), and yes, as many as possible, but the trusty van does have it's limitations. If you have connected with a specific painting at my website and are needing to see it up close and personal, please let me know. I will make sure it has reserved accomodations for the trip!

As this post is appearing to need a bit of color, I will show you what is currently on the easel, and will hopefully reach completion by the above mentioned dates!

Later, Cooper

I just wanted to let you know about a new forum for artists as well as musicians, fashion designers, and filmmakers, As an artist I think that the mission is really great. The site gives you a free gigabyte of space for portfolio, there is no commission taken for sales, audio and visual works can been streamed in their entirety, you can create live personal broadcasts for your followers, and anything you write will be translated into 10 languages. So check it out!

I'm planning on coming, Karen. You're probably already gone and beyond the reach of the internet.

Hope to see you tomorrow.

As nice as this event is for the people that like outdoor entertainment, it's not as wonderful for the downtown workers in and around the Gene Leahy Mall in the office buildings. Starting as early as Thursday night, streets are being blocked off and changed from one-way to two-way streets. I saw a couple of near misses because drivers are confused. I wouldn't want to be in the office building near 13th & Farnam with the new-age band playing loud music Friday afternoon. At least the area looked clean on Monday morning. This event has gotten so large it's time to move it to a new location. The Santa Lucia festival also used to block off the same streets but they moved to the waterfront where the city has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars developing and promoting. Parking is less than adequate in the current area. It doesn't seem to make any logical sense yet the city public works department seems to encourage the event to continue.
