Benson Mural Project

In collaboration with Leadership Omaha and Omaha By Design, the Watie White studio put together the Benson Mural Project to address specific hurdles to development in the Benson community in Omaha. Designed as a project-based mentoring & professional development program, the Benson Mural Project paired working artists with a novice to design and implement a mural in the alleyways of Benson. Currently, a thriving arts and culture district, the initial 7 murals have been followed by dozens more in the decade since. – Watie White
