Launched in summer 2012, the renovation of the Carver Bank building marked the second phase of Theaster Gates’s Town Hall project, which has been underway since 2010. Carver Bank is the site of the first African American-owned bank in Omaha. The project’s goal is for the site to become a space of public participation and cultural adventure, and serve as a hub for the creative and public life of its neighborhood and community. The 2,600-square-foot Carver Bank facility has been fully renovated and now offers exhibition and performance space, artist studios, Big Mama’s Sandwich Shop, as well as 3,000-square-feet of transformed exterior landscape. Managed and programmed by the Bemis Center, Carver Bank will host regular exhibitions, events, and workshops driven by artists and community partners. The Carver Bank opening celebration will feature performances by artists-in-residence Portia Love, Shannon Marie and Dereck Higgins. Carver Bank has been made possible by broad community partnerships and philanthropic support.
