Omaha First Friday: October 2014

So everything is starting to get a little spooky because it’s October, blah, blah, blah. Thankfully, there’s a little-to-none of that going on this month for First Friday. But really it’s all about getting out and about and soaking in some art. Maybe you’ll even find an buy an item or two you like, Great Pumpkin be damned. Below are listings of what we were able to round up for First Friday this October. 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 Facebook (we’ll update to a better link next month).
