First Friday at F Street!

In honor of Juneteenth and July 4, this First Friday is all about 'These United States'. Come out to celebrate the voices of our next generation's young leaders!!

Duane Wunderlich and South of Downtown is bringing you:

Letura Idigima, a world-class photographer on a mission to impact the lives of the people around her. Apart from elevating herself as a Fashion & Lifestyle Photographer, Letura is a Special Education Para at Lincoln High School -- all while running free community art projects and activities for young creatives in Lincoln! Her latest projects range from a free Black Panther screening for underprivileged youth, to a mobile art studio still in the works!

She is a force to be reckoned with!
Check out her latest project: The Art Studio LNK!!!

Justice Alicia is an incredible young woman, expressing herself in ways you may not have seen yet. Justice is an 18 year old artist and aspiring Arts Educator, working with traditional art mediums, a Nikon D3100 and a Wacom digital drawing tablet. She is most comfortable with her moleskine sketchbooks and creates worlds of expression that are very easy to become lost within.

Paintings&Murals Leija (Daniel Leija) a featured Latino Lives artist, will be featuring his incredible portraits and murals. He has been exploring this craft for only a couple of years and is already producing amazing works of city life, custom portraits and many other multi-media masterpieces. You won't want to miss his phenomenal craft.

This month, jam to the tunes of DJ ANIMALE, who's had the honor of working with Nike, Converse, Omaha Chamber of Commerce and now -- You! You're in for a treat and an amazing time!!

As usual, we'll have delicious food, wonderful music, and amazing people. Take your first step on First Friday here, at the F Street Community Center!

TREES ARE ________.

Celebrate the life of the ash trees along F Street before they come down!

We want to inspire a mindful use of Lincoln’s removed Ash Trees by promoting creative solutions to community needs -- through utilizing urban lumber beyond conventional wood-chipping and landfill disposal.

Come spend an afternoon illustrating the needs that Ash wood could serve in your neighborhood by helping us label and paint 10 trees along the F Street corridor.
