Millwork Commons Shipping Container Mural Project


Amplify Arts is proud to be partnering with the Millwork Commons neighborhood on an innovative public art project. This neighborhood has been known for innovation since the first bricks were laid, and it will continue as artists help build a place where innovators and creators collaborate and grow. A long-term vision for Millwork Commons is to strengthen Omaha’s urban core and help define our city as a culturally vibrant and inclusive place. Artists are essential in helping to accomplish this goal. 

We are currently seeking artists to submit applications. Three artists will be chosen to collaborate on a large mural project on shipping containers (500 sf each). Each artist will be responsible for painting one shipping container which, when stacked, will create one cohesive piece. The selected artists will be given one month to meet, collaborate, and develop a concept to present to the jury for approval. Selected artists will each receive a $6,000 stipend

Applications are now closed. Award recipients will be announced soon.
