Sunny & Chair Call for Artists

UPDATE: We are thrilled to announce that Omaha Steaks is the presenting sponsor for the 2022 Sunny and Chair Community Art Project.  That’s great news for each artist selected to participate. Each artist/ artist team selected will NOW receive a $1,000 stipend, one Adirondack chair and the the opportunity for city-wide exposure to local and visitors – and more! We are immensely grateful for the support of Omaha Steaks and look forward to this inspiring, colorful display of artistically designed chairs highlighting Omaha’s destinations and/or distinctive attributes.

We’re turning up the volume this summer with the perfect duet: the sun on our faces and dazzling Adirondack chairs for all to enjoy. Midtown Crossing, in collaboration with Visit Omaha, is seeking local creatives, artists, illustrators and/or designers who can turn a collection of Adirondack chairs into works of art, highlighting one of Omaha’s destinations and/or distinctive attributes. Once painted, the works of art will be positioned throughout the Midtown Crossing neighborhood making the urban setting even more beautiful, more inspiring and relaxing for residents and guests alike. 

Artists and artist teams of all experience levels are encouraged to apply by Friday, March 18, 2022.
