<p>Artists Josh Powell and Kim Reid Kuhn collaborate on one of Bemis Underground's last shows, Underground, History

Well, it’s official. In case you missed it, last month, the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts unceremoniously removed the signage from its former Underground entrance, after the former venue lay dormant for more than a year.

A mainstay of alternative artistic curiosity and invention since its inception in 2006, the Underground’s mission was “to support exceptional talent through exhibitions and programming which...

HEARTS OF DARKNESS

We Are Proud to Present, A Presentation About the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as Southwest Africa, From the German Sudwestafrika, Between the Years 1884-1915 is the play’s full title. Reading it,  you might say “Huh?”  It looks kind of weird, right?   Thus does playwright Jackie Sibblies Drury provoke you from the outset.  Actually she’s taking on the personas of six actors who don’t have it all together,...

Now that story is told anew in Omaha Community Playhouse’s  dynamic, colorful, compelling production of 28 year old English playwright Lucy Prebble’s imaginative, satirical take on the events in Enron.  

The tale becomes fascinating for anyone not much familiar with what happened. The...

Larry Roots and his gallery, Modern Arts Midtown, seem to suffer from an embarrassment of riches.  With new and inventive work by the highly regarded “vermin” sculptor Jamie Burmeister at its heart, the current exhibition on view at the gallery until August 30 devotes the rest of the revolving spaces to a smorgasbord of work by other artists, some being shown by a gallery for the first time.

Business Suits and Raves

            The unique design of Enron by Lucy Prebble at the Omaha Community Playhouse blends the worlds of Realism and Absurdism.
