"Mug Shot" Series
Photography Art Opening with Aubrey Nye 
Friday • April 4 • 6-9pm • First Friday Old Market Art Walk
Showing thru April 27th Stop in Tue-Sat Noon-5pm! 

Aubrey Nye's  Nebraska, “Mugshot” Series showing at OM Center will be featured in “NebraskaLife” magazine in March. These are detailed graphite drawings from the omaha police files of the late 1800”s and early 1900’s in Omaha. Each one has been extensively researched so you also have the story behind each character.
The crimes range from a horse stealer,a young man who stole gold fillings and spent 1 1/2 in jail, a young lady that sued the judge for her arrest which was unknown at this time, a lady that shot her husband for adultery and acquitted, young prostitutes whose occupation was one of the only ones offered to women, to nefarious characters of murder and mayhem. 
Aubrey’s drawings are such that when you look into the eyes of these people you feel as if they are telling you their story. You may even find that you are related to one of them!




Poetry Slam at OM!
Saturday • April 12 • 7:30pm • $7
Open mic starts at 7:30 followed by the Slam • Sign up BEFORE 7:30; signup is limited

What is a Poetry Slam?

It's competition poetry; meaning humor, politics, enlightenment, sex, entertainment masquerading as literature, literature masquerading as entertainment. Poets will read, then judges will flash Olympic-style scoring to determine who goes on to the next round until there's just one poet left standing as the champion. In truth, everyone who adds to the evening should be considered a winner, but since we only have one Golden Monkey trophy, we have to figure out some way to give it out. It's a lot of fun! 

Hosted by Matt Mason. Open mic starts at 7:30 followed by the featured performer and the slam; sign up BEFORE 7:30 as signup is limited and will only be allowed after 7:30 if less than 8 are in the slam.
