Artwork from the Kent Bellows Studio is on view in the Omaha Mayor’s office.
Anne Meysenburg, Executive Director for the Kent Bellows Studio, said Mayor Jim Suttle's office wanted something to connect them to the art community, as well as something to beautify their offices. She says the 12 pieces on display include some paintings, some drawings and collage work.
Meysenburg says the art was created by students over the past couple of semesters. She says the students and staff at the studio are excited about this collaboration with the Mayor’s office.
"We really think it’s a valuable opportunity for our students to receive notoriety out in the community but also to learn more about what’s going on in our government and how they can play a part in that."
Meysenburg says the students at the Kent Bellows Studio are highly creative. They are all participating in the young arts mentoring program. They progress in their own creative study through that program while working hands on with established artists.
