by Paul Konchagulian


Mediums: Steel

Location: Gene Leahy Mall; Gene Leahy Mall, North side of the lagoon between 10th – 13th Street

Owner: City of Omaha

Series: Take A Seat

Additional Information: “aha-Mo!” the prairie individual, welcomes you to the City of Omaha. “aha-Mo!” is sponsored by The Architectural Offices, Paul Konchagulian, Dundee Bank, Werner Paint and Nielsen-Baumert Engineering. This piece is made exclusively of mild plate steel. The three main forms will be welded steel plate. Depth of the piece was achieved by adding sides to the profile of the hand and fingers. The steel was cut to shape with plasma cutter. The steel pieces have Mr. Konchagulian’s trademark stitching. This project is very sustainable.

The steel used was donated from the remodeling of Dundee Bank in Omaha. Steel also can be easily recycled when “Take a Seat” has reached the end of its useful life.

b3nch , 2010

by Brian Kelly; Andrea Kelly


Mediums: Steel

Location: Gene Leahy Mall; Gene Leahy Mall Farnam Street side, lower level near the water, east of 13th Street

Owner: City of Omaha (Parks Recreation)

Series: Take A Seat

Additional Information: Donated by ATOMdesign, InfraStructure, KSI Construction, Bender Ornamental and Hunter Painting. The intent was to design a bench that would reflect the energy and dynamics of Downtown Omaha and the Gene Leahy Mall. The operations of folding and cutting plate steel emerged into a series of localized contextual responses. The base of the bench, poised as if ready to jump, gestures toward a machine aesthetic. The seat itself, fabricated from one sheet of plate steel, is cut and folded to create intimate places for conversation and interaction. The entire bench is 3/8” welded, painted plate steel with a center beam support which is 2”x4” painted tube steel. The unit is finished with Sherwin Williams clear anti-graffiti coating.

Forty-one artists submitted proposals to the Bemis Center’s national sculpture competition. This piece was created by R. Justin Stewart. The Artist-in-Industry Steel Collaboration Project was made possible by Valmont Industries, who donated resources, materials, studio workspace, access to machinery and fabrication assistance to the sculptors. Most notably, Valmont’s highly-trained technicians Tyler Pearce and Randy Banghart enabled the artists to realize their sculptures at six-times larger than their proposed models, and their expertise enabled the resulting public art to coordinate perfectly with the architecture and atmosphere of Qwest Center Omaha.
