The New American Arts Festival – Reframed

New American Arts Festival – Reframed

An IN-PERSON and VIRTUAL celebration of the visual and performing arts of New Americans (Immigrant and Refugees) in downtown Benson!

Join us for the 2020 New American Arts Festival – Reframed on Friday, August 7! This project, in its 7th year, is hosted by Lutheran Family Services and BFF Omaha. Due to COVID-19 our typical street festival on Military Avenue in downtown Benson will now be a hybrid of in person gallery exhibits on Maple St. as well as virtual performances, and an online artisan market.

Even though this season has forced us to change plans our goal is still the same. We seek to highlight the performance and visual arts of Omaha’s refugee and immigrant communities. And we are excited to have you join us even from the comfort of your own home. Continue to check our website, facebook page, and instagram for all performances, market, and gallery details.
