The Union for Contemporary Art “strives to unite artists and the community to inspire positive social change in North Omaha.” The Union took this vision to heart when they began their search for a larger facility in which to house their expanding program needs. They focused in on a vacant building in a prominent North Omaha location that was once a lively commercial and entertainment node. The new space is five times the size of The Union’s original home, allowing the organization to expand its program offerings.
Over the years, it housed an auto repair shop; an agricultural supplier; a candy shop; a jazz club; and the offices of two African-American community leaders, dentist Craig Morris and doctor J.H. Hutten. Most recently, it was a workforce development office for a nonprofit agency.
“The APMA staff led our renovation team – helping to breathe new life into a building that has immeasurable cultural significance for our community and ensuring that it will stand to serve our community for another 100 years.”
– Brigitte McQueen-Shew
The new space has allowed The Union to increase its capacity and ability to better serve its mission by creating opportunities for them to expand their youth mentoring programs from 15 to upwards of 80 children.
Enhance their artist residency program through upgraded studio facilities and broadening the program’s impact on the professional development of local artists.
The Union was able to promote North 24th Street as a growing arts and culture district by anchoring a multi-million investment into a first-class facility.
