5 Virtual Arts Experiences in Omaha
Just because you’re spending your days at home doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the arts and entertainment activities that you love. These Omaha attractions are providing their virtual visitors with the opportunity to” visit” an art gallery, “go to” the cinema and “attend” the symphony.
Check out these five virtual experiences that give the phrase “in-home entertainment” a whole new meaning.

KANEKO Communal Art Project
KANEKO is encouraging artists from across the state to create artwork using their favorite mediums to be included in The Tessellation Project.

Help support the project by submitting your own artwork to be displayed in the collective project.
