Incoming students that are seeking to connect with the local arts scene should be certain to make the KANEKO art gallery one of their first stops. The KANEKO,which operates closely with the University of Nebraska at Omaha on several fronts, is a non–profit organization dedicated to encouraging and exploring creativity.
Until Oct. 14, the KANEKO gallery will be hosting the KINETIC exhibit. The art collection focuses on movement in art and features a variety of different artists expressing this through different mediums.
John Buck, the exhibit’s featured artist, brings his wooden sculptures to life with moving parts.These animated sculptures set the tone for the entire gallery.
While the first floor of the KANEKO is primarily occupied by Buck’s art pieces, the upper floors are currently housing projects by other artists and the University of Nebraska at Omaha Department of Biomechanics.
