Art Bikes Project Nominated for Outstanding Public Art by the Omaha Entertainment and Arts Awards
The Art Bikes project, by Heartland B-cycle and artists at the Joselyn Art Museum's Kent Bellows Mentoring Program, has been nominated for Outstanding Public Art at the 15th Annual Omaha Entertainment and Arts Awards. We are honored to be nominated alongside incredible artists and organizations in our community. For this project, Heartland B-cycle turned bikes that needed a paint touch-up into a canvas for young artists in our community. Students at Kent Bellows Mentoring Program painted 10 bikes which travel across the Metro in the Heartland B-cycle system.

The 15th Annual OEA Awards will be held on Facebook Live on Sunday, February 28th at 5:45pm. Visual Art Nominees will be on display at the Roberta & Bob Rogers Gallery from February 19th-March 6th.
