GET A MAP & EXPLORE!

Held the first Friday of each month, 6-9pm, First Friday is a free event celebrating local creativity in Omaha's most historic neighborhood.

Stroll the Old Market's distinctive brick streets as you're serenaded by live music. Ignite your imagination in the art galleries, where you might explore a fresh perspective in the bold brushstrokes of a painting or in the contours of a bronze sculpture. Glimpse views of faraway lands and intense emotions.

The galleries celebrate new shows monthly with receptions where you can meet and talk with the artists who create the pieces you admire.

Next Event: Friday, Sept. 5th
