Omaha artists unveiled a mural celebrating Croatian history Sunday. This is the latest work by The South Omaha Mural Project.

The artwork celebrates south Omaha's Croatian community. It’s on display on Bere's Hall at 36th and W streets.

The dedication helped mark the 100th anniversary of the Saints Peter and Paul Parish.

"It's meant to represent the Croatian Community and the three things that really come our through it is work, faith and family,” said mural committee member Tom Drzaic.

The mural features the likeness of Cardinal Blase Cupich whose grandfather helped raise money to build Saints Peter and Paul Parish in 1917.

Cupich will be in Omaha to lead a mass at the parish on Thursday.
