Spotlight on Omaha

The Robert Kerry BridgeThe Robert Kerry Bridge

You can’t go to Omaha without hearing about Bob. What is so special about a bridge, you ask? Well for starters, it is one of the most beautiful spans of a river in the world. It leads to miles of walking trails. The information stations along the bridge offer a perspective on the environment, the first peoples who lived here, and the construction of the bridge. Perhaps you’d like to go Bob walking, or even Bobbing (yes, it’s a thing) while in Omaha. Bob is close to the conference hotel, so you can take the MLK walkway to the river and you will have a chance to check it out for yourself. You may even meet Omar.

Old Market Square  https://oldmarket.com/

Just a short walk from the Hilton Hotel in Omaha is the Old Market District – a 17-acre area of historic buildings amid cobblestone streets that is home to a diverse mix of stores funky and modern, restaurants featuring Midwest cuisine and ethnic specialties, bars with a lot of character(s), and interesting art galleries. There is something there for everyone. THE OLD MARKET is Omaha's most historic, most entertaining neighborhood. You can even go for a ride in a horse-drawn carriage!

El Museo Latino www.elmuseolatino.org.

The El Museo Latino opened its doors in the historic Livestock Exchange Building on Cinco de Mayo 1993. It was the first Latino art and history museum and cultural center in the Midwest. In 1997, the museum moved to its present brick and red tile roof building. The original construction of 1887 was a school and was reconstructed in the 1930s. Today, El Museo Latino is one of the only twelve Latino museums in the United States. What would you see there? In addition to special exhibits, the collection includes traditional, indigenous, and contemporary works ranging from Pre-Columbian time to the present. The collection includes textiles, sculpture, photographs, ceramics, and works on paper. (Photos from www.elmusueolatino.org)
