Omaha First Friday: September 2014

September, that lovely month when all the kids are back in school and the rest of us are just waiting for the heat to break. It also means it’s not excusable to stay at home and play that long-lost copy of “EarthBound” you found for SNES — get out and take in some art! Below are listings of what we were able to round up for First Friday this September. If your exhibit or event isn’t listed here and/or on our calendar, feel free to submit the details yourself.

Another good resource to check out — one that we personally use — is Lincoln First Friday listings can be found on the Downtown Lincoln Association website.
