Admission to Storm Chasers games includes access to the “Times, Teams & Talent” exhibit at no extra charge.
Exhibit could open door to success
Hands to Harvest Community Garden, 1113 S. 31st St., will have an Art in the Garden event in July. The date has not been set.
Artists are being offered free wooden doors to paint or decorate for the event. Omaha Restore and Urban Village donated the doors. The decorated doors will be displayed for an opening celebration in the garden and be up for a week as an exhibit.
