“On Hire” features work of 25 Amplify Arts artists

Each year, ​Amplify Arts (formerly Omaha Creative Institute) brings together 25 Omaha-area artists for eight weeks to share skills, evaluate work, and build communities of peers. In marking the completion of the most recent cycle, "On Hire" looks at chance as a point of departure to assess the generative qualities of experimentation, failure and self-reflection. Included works will reexamine, reformat and re-contextualize creative risks through the editing process to open space for thoughtful discussion, observation and evaluation.

"On Hire" will be on display in the Michael Phipps Gallery at W. Dale Clark Main Library through Sunday, February 24.
