Established visual and performing artists are joined by emerging artists for this annual event concluding North Omaha Summer Arts (NOSA). North Omaha resident, advocate and artist Pamela Jo Berry saw a need for more arts engagement in her underserved area and she created NOSA in 2011 as a response. The free festival, which included a women's writing workshop and a gospel concert earlier this summer, culminates in the Arts Crawl. Stroll or drive a short stretch of venues along and near North 30th Street to sample diverse art as well as free food and beverages at each stop. The participating venues are:

Metropolitan Community College, Fort Omaha Campus, Mule Barn (Building 21)                                                                                                                                                          Church of the Resurrection, 3004 Belvedere Blvd.                                                                                                                                                                                                      Trinity Lutheran Church, 6340 North 30th Street                                                                                                                                                                                                      Parkside Baptist Church, 3008 Newport Avenue                                                                                                                                                                                                       Heartland Family Service, 6720 North 30th Street

The Arts Crawl and North Omaha Summer Arts are reviving North O's arts-culture landscape in the same way the Carver, the Union, Loves Jazz and the Great Plains Black History Museum are.
