Courtney Bierman interviews Scott Dobbe, government director of Omaha by Design
Forward of Metro Tranit’s ORBT line’s launch on Nov. 18, you may need observed colourful additions to bus stops alongside Dodge Avenue. Metro Transit partnered with Omaha by Design, an city coverage and design nonprofit, to enlist 10 native artists to create designs for the communication bins at some new ORBT canopies.
Artists Pamela Conyers-Hinson, Dan Crane, Tyler Emery, Rebecca Harrison, Betni Kalk, Sarah Rowe, Patty Talbert, Weston Thomson, Aaryon “Hen” Williams and Hugo Zamorano had been commissioned by Omaha by Design to beautify Omaha’s latest public transit system.
Artwork + ORBT is the primary in Omaha by Design’s Artwork + Infrastructure initiative. The initiative goals to enliven “forgotten” items of the town, equivalent to underpasses and alleyways. Courtney Bierman spoke to Omaha by Design government director Scott Dobbe concerning the undertaking.
