Benson First Friday BFF is dedicated to supporting the region’s emerging and established artists by creating opportunity, exposure and experiences that help them move forward while enriching the cultural competency of the greater Omaha area.

We organize and operate monthly neighborhood art walks in Benson that include visual art exhibitions, performance art, musicians, an artist vendor market, community engagement, youth outreach, fashion, food, special events and more. Our growth in recent years has allowed us to expand into other areas, such as public art projects, the creation of new gallery spaces, the development of publications and our Mayflower Mobile Gallery (a 42′ semi trailer that we’ve transformed into an art/event space).
