Established by the Chicago-based artist and cultural planner Theaster Gates in collaboration with the Bemis Center, Carver Bank is a creative-placemaking project that provides space to convene around the arts in North Omaha, a historically African American neighborhood. The 2,600-square-foot interior features publicly accessible meeting and performance spaces as well as Big Mama's Sandwich Shop, with an additional 3,000-square-feet of exterior space.
