Public Art Designed to Foster Dialogue

A formerly empty space at 12th and Cass in downtown Omaha has a little more character and a lot of opportunity for dialogue.

The first of several public art projects went on display Monday.

The project is called Typecast Recast and it's sponsored by the Anti-Defamation League. The two works on display are “Always Forgive, Never Forget" and "Debbie Butler."

Alan Potash, with the Plains States Anti-Defamation League said, "The goal behind the project was to give our artists really an opportunity to look at the mission of the ADL, to create pieces that would help the community kind of look at opportunities to engage in conversation."

Four other projects, which will be part of the display, should be installed later this week.
