Curbside Clothing, which offers designs by local artists on screen-printed T-shirts and other apparel, is opening a second location at the Shops of Legacy, near 168th Street and West Center Road.

The goal is to open at the beginning of May, said Kurt Grabenbauer, the company's co-owner.

“We wanted to open ourselves up to the west Omaha market,” he said.

Artist Adam Hogan founded Curbside's first store in the Old Market at 11th and Howard Streets nearly three years ago.

The store features men's, women's and children's T-shirts, jackets, hats and onesies for babies decorated with the designs of local artists such as Liz Rosholm, street artist Gerard Pefung and tattoo artist Dave Koenig.

“We started with one artist,” Grabenbauer said. But Omaha's tight-knit artists community spread the word about the store's concept and now Curbside offers designs by eight artists.

Artists receive a percentage of all sales of their designs.

The store's apparel line is sold nationally and in Canada, Panama, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

The designs are screen-printed onto high-quality T-shirts, jackets and hats at the store's screen print shop, located near Jackson Street, Grabenbauer said. “We want to put good art on good T-shirts.”

The 800-square-foot store at the Shops of Legacy will carry the same products as Curbside's Old Market location.
