Out of the Box

This summer Omaha will be the envy of the art world as Outside Kaneko opens at Lauritzen Gardens

(page 2 of 4)


a summer of Celebration.

Kaneko’s work will also be featured this month in Opera Omaha’s production of Madama Butterfly. His set and costume designs for the opera first premiered on the Orpheum stage in 2006 before going “on tour” at opera companies across America. He has since designed the 2008 Opera Company of Philadelphia production of Fidelio and is now putting the finishing touches on lending his signature look to yet another original production, The Magic Flute at the San Francisco Opera.

 A series of educational, cultural and artistic programming surrounds Outside Kaneko. Specially guided tours are available through September 14. The August 6 & 7 Earth and Fire event features local ceramic artists interacting with the audience by allowing some the opportunity to make their own Raku pot in the process that uses the fire and smoke of natural materials — no bulky kilns needed for this one — to render variegated designs on pottery.
