In case you haven’t heard about it yet, the exhibit Undesign the Redline at The Union for Contemporary Art examines how Omaha’s near North and South neighborhoods were systematically segregated from the rest of the city. You are invited on a virtual tour of the exhibit, facilitated by trained tour guides. These tours are free and open to all, but space is limited, so be sure to register here.
Times are tough for a lot of us right now, so stretching the budget, and our food supply, is key. If you’d like to learn how to do this, be sure to get your ticket for Food for Thought—A Rescued Food Experience. Saving Grace Perishable Food Rescue invites you to an engaging conversation with Blossom & Wood, a nonprofit focused on using the resources you have in the best way possible. Get your tickets here.
The Rockbrook Village Friday Night Concert Series continues in August with a live performance from local group Stan & The Chain Gang, known for playing Americana, soul, blues, and gospel. (Be sure to check out their guitarist, Grover Lipkins, featured in Omaha Magazine here.) Find future concert dates here.
Sometimes, just being outside is therapeutic. If you need a little outdoor therapy time, you can attend August Living History Weekend at Fort Atkinson and learn while you heal. Masks are recommended but not required in the fort itself, with proper social distancing. They are required in the visitor center. Entrance is free with a state park permit, otherwise there is a $6 entrance fee. Click here to see what's new.
