Omaha Uncovered: Revealing History Through Art and Story

Exhibit on display August 7 – November 21, 2021

History is revealed to us in many ways. Objects, art, stories and memories all serve as connections to our past. This fall, The Durham Museum is proud to partner with the Gerald R. Ford Conservation Center for a project in commemoration of the 90th anniversary of Omaha Union Station. Over the course of four months, conservators will be “on exhibit” actively restoring a historic mural entitled “Aerial View of Omaha” that once hung in the lobby of the Omaha Bee newspaper office. The beautifully painted mural looks west from the Missouri River towards the western horizon and elegantly captures the layout of the Omaha of the past and present. Lovers of maps, history and art will enjoy seeing the faded mural brought to new life over the duration of the project.
