FLOCK HOUSE: OMAHA

The Flock House project was a collaboration between Bemis Center artist-in-residence Mary Mattingly and Omaha community members who worked with her to design, fabricate and occupy two Flock House structures deployed at the Bemis Center in Omaha’s Old Market and at Carver Bank in North Omaha. Mattingly's Flock Houses explore the future of urban space, self-sufficiency, dependency and the community’s role in making shared spaces habitable. Local artists, students, urbanists and others resided in the Flock Houses over the summer, using them as places for creative practice, dialogue and urban engagement.
