- Running now through November 21
- The Durham Museum
This fall, guests at The Durham Museum will get the opportunity to see Ariel View of Omaha restored. The faded mural from 1905 once hung in the lobby of the Omaha Daily Bee and is a part of The Durham Museum’s permanent collection. The mural captures Omaha from above and across the Missouri River.
The restoration will be done by Kenneth Bé, an art conservator from the Ford Conservation Center. Guests can watch Bé actively restore Ariel View from Omaha from the Photo Archive’s working lab. In addition to seeing the mural being brought back to life, historic photos of Omaha from the museum’s collection will be digitized by museum staff.
