Omaha’s contemporary art community exists, tangibly, in the beloved Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts. Local and national artists alike showcase their work and have studio spaces in this long-cherished institution located just south of the Old Market. Starting this weekend (Sep. 17-18 and 24-25), River Dreams is offering the chance to give back to the local art community and keep the Bemis alive. This 10-day event is hosted by the Riverfront Place and partnered with D3 Interiors, Designer’s Touch and The Interior Design Firm. IT will benefit the Bemis, as well as showcase the talent of the three design firms. Each firm was given a budget and created their own unique vision of high-rise living, experimenting with the latest trends in contemporary architecture and design for riverfront living. The nine-day tour will offer a chance for attendees to choose their favorite designs and win their dream design for a room in their home.
