MCC bringing public art project to south Omaha

May 12, 2014

A 3,300 square foot space at Metro Community College’s South Omaha campus will become a public art project.

Students in MCC’s art program are designing and painting the mural on the South Campus Connector Building. A community meeting was held last week to gather ideas for the mural.

Susan Trinkle, Art History instructor at MCC, says public feedback showed that people want to see a mural that represents south Omaha's diverse cultures and history. She says the mural will be centered around people.

Trinkle says students will begin painting the mural in June, with completion by late August or early September. She says the project has been in the works for about a year.
