Garage to Gallery
This 1925 automobile repair garage was transformed into a modern, contemporary art gallery. The building’s open floor plan and barrel vaulted ceiling with exposed steel trusses created a dramatic and idea setting to the display of this world class collection.

A new entry portico to the east offers a grand, covered welcome punctuated by a custom steel purlin canopy that extends across the south façade and interior of the gallery.
“While every project presents its unique challenges, the opportunity of working with you always makes the process a pleasure. We couldn’t be more pleased with the finished project.”
— Robert Duncan, Chairman Emeritus
A new polished concrete floor and exposed brick walls interspersed with floating art display walls maintain the integrity of the original building while offering expansive space for installation.

Callahan will be joining us for the summer as an interior design intern. She will be entering her senior year at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln pursuing her degree in Interior Design. Remember The Sims video game series? Well, that game provided an initial spark that ignited Callahan’s passion for interior design. When she’s not in the studio, Callahan can be found working out, cooking, dining at her favorite restaurant The Blatt, walking her dogs, or binge-watching Netflix.

It shows in the relationships he has built and nurtured over the years. Martin has made a lasting impression in our hearts and on the landscape of Omaha and Iowa. Congratulations, Martin!
