(Baseball Player) , 1927

by Unknown


Mediums: Granite

Location: Mid-Town; Elmwood Park 68th and Leavenworth 100 yards North of the Grotto and 100 yards to the East of the Pavilion in the Park

Owner: City of Omaha

Additional Information: This baseball player, dubbed Bosco by some who didn’t appreciate his lack of style and grace, was atop a pedestal in Elmwood Park. Bocso was bronze and with the base, cost the Omaha Amateur Baseball Association $3500.00 in 1927. Made in a Chicago foundry, Bosco was dedicated in a ceremony in which a little girl doused him with a bottle of Elmwood spring water. The site for Bosco is adjacent to the Grotto (which had spring water) in Elmwood Park. Bosco remained on site until 1942 when he was dumped on a scrap-metal pile at 11th & Jackson streets during a collection campaign for “scrap metal for the war” (started by the Omaha World-Herald). A group of Central High School students freed Bosco with crowbars and wrenches and delivered him by truck to the collection site. There has been discussion over the years about replacing Bosco atop the remaining pedestal.

Art Before Silence , 2005

by Alyssa Denny


Mediums: Mural, Paint

Location: Mid-Town; Adventure in Art, 6001 Maple Street,

Owner: Adventure in Art

Additional Information: Kristi Pederson, owner of Adventure in Art, has always felt that troubled kids had a lot to say. They just sometime couldn't express themselves. With this in mind, she approached the local Drug Court and was allowed to do a presentation to all of the kids currently in the program. She held a contest and the winning design is what you see on the side of the building at my business. Almost all of the kids in Drug Court participated; from prep work to the actual painting of the mural and to the clean up stages as well. Alyssa Denny was the artist with the winning design.
