The Omaha Summer Arts Festival will be presenting signs made by students in Glenwood and others throughout the area during the first week of June. 

Nine students created signs as an assignment for their Visual Arts class, with the goal of inspiring and motivating the public. 

“When I need inspiration, I usually look up at the sky and that’s how I came up with my idea.” said junior Terra Jensen. “I’m really proud of it because I ended up painting it to look like a smiley face.”

The Omaha Summer Arts Festival will be held both virtually and outdoors. It also features a chance for student artists to submit their works in a contest where they can gain recognition for their pieces..

Students who submitted a sign include seniors Kaydon Good, Ethan Wyatt, Madeline Becker, Destiney Tyson and Julia Barton; juniors Grace Tattersall, Terra Jensen and Aza Sechtem; and sophomore Madison Rogers.

The wood signs will be displayed in the Joslyn Art Museum at the fountain court Friday, June 4 from 10-8, Saturday, June 5 and Sunday, June 6 from 10-4. They will also be displayed throughout the Omaha metro. Maps will be released of where the signs are at a later date.
