Overview of Idea


City streets are getting creative and exploring new possibilities - we believe that streets are urban arteries feeding the city. PaveMEANT looks to open a dialogue reflecting on the purpose and function of streets. The project will use a large scale street mural as the catalyst for the conversation.

The Specifics: What will the $5,000 fund?

This gift will fund artist concepts, gallons and gallons of paint, and supplies to create a massive street mural. The gift will also fund building materials to create inclusive living spaces that generate environments for conversations revolving around transportation, public space, community engagement, economic development, and urban interaction. It would support an experience that transcends normalcy and integrates new thoughts and ideas together.

This idea is awesome because it is occurring in a place that is ready for change, but not yet blown over with creativity. The day that PaveMEANT is released will be a day of getting hundreds of Omahans to come together in a unique space that has been neglected and ignored despite the incredible businesses, art centers, and learning centers surrounding it. With live music and food, people will be able to hands on participate in the creation of a public street mural, engaging the existing forms as a call to action to discuss how the street should change. Inspired by public street takeovers in other cities, there will also be several 'living room' quarters where people can relax, sit, and eat or drink while enjoying the chance to see the street a little differently. Please support this idea for it's just the beginning of a move that can really jump start our city!
