Populus Fund is a new regranting initiative organized by The Union for Contemporary Art, through the generous support of The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts in order to support innovative artist projects throughout Omaha–Lincoln metros.  Populus Fund was founded to provide essential support for projects that expand our understanding of how art exists in the world, address community needs, and exemplify new ways of working in, for, and with the public.

Communications Director for The Union for Contemporary Art, Patrick Mainelli, joined Mike Hogan “Live & Local” to discuss the program, how to apply, and when the lottery drawings happen.

  “I’m sorry. We’ve kept our silence long enough.”

That is the last line of a poem by writer Ikran Hamza titled, “My apology letter (children of war).”

The poem is pasted in neat white letters across the street-facing windows at the Union for Contemporary Art in North Omaha. Inside the windows are two beautiful black and white photographs taken by local artist N8 DeVivo. The display can be viewed entirely from the sidewalk outside the building.
