These remarkable toys will then be featured in a performance/exhibition at The Union, created by Mattie Ullrich as part of Opera Omaha’s ONE Festival. Please note this is a 4-part workshop. Participants must be able to attend all four sessions in order to complete the project.

As part of the Union's Youth program, Gallery Explorations provide opportunities for youth to engage in themes and practices inspired by the work of current exhibiting artists. Presenting five or more shows in the Wanda D. Ewing Gallery, exhibitions at The Union serve to showcase works by local and national artists, with emphasis on the diversity of twenty-first-century artistic practices and the work of artists of color and those using their practice for positive social change.
