First Friday: March 2015

Holy hell, what is all this warm weather about? Oh yeah, it’s finally March. Get your thaw on and get out there and explore some local galleries (just don’t roll up smelling like a fish fry — yuck). Below are the listings of what we were able to round up for First Friday all over Omaha. If your exhibit or event isn’t listed here and/or on our calendar, feel free to submit the details yourself.

Don’t forget to give thanks to First Friday Old Market for keeping the art ball a-rollin’ downtown and Benson First Friday for creating something strange and beautiful each month in Omaha’s weirdest neighborhood (we obvs use both these sites as resources for this post). Oh yeah, and Lincoln First Friday listings can be found here.

For maps of the galleries in the Old Market and of the melee going on in Benson, scroll all the way down to the bottom.
