Civic Sidewalk Series

September 25, 2022 @ 1:30 pm - October 1, 2022 @ 5:30 pm

The Civic Sidewalk Series will take place at several locations in Lincoln, Omaha, and Grand Island starting Sept. 25 and finishing Oct. 1. Local artists will spray-chalk motivational messages about voting at various locations, while Civic Nebraska and partners will provide voter education, registration, and help for voters in making plans for the Nov. 8 general election.
This is the third Civic Sidewalk Series. The first took place in Lincoln in the run-up to the 2020 general election. Partners in the project included the South of Downtown Community Development Organization, Civic Nebraska, the LUX Center for the Arts, and Adria Does Design. In 2021, the Series returned to raise awareness and engagement for municipal elections in Omaha and Lincoln. For the upcoming general election, partner organizations expanded to The Wellbeing Partners, Latino Center of the Midlands, the Union for Contemporary Arts, The Gathering Place, and YWCA of Grand Island.
