Grace: Bemis curator helps north Omaha revitalize Carver Bank site
Hesse McGraw, the chief curator of the Bemis Center, is one of the driving forces behind a project to convert Carver Bank, Nebraska's first black-owned bank, into an art gallery, art studios and a sandwich counter. From among 46 artists who applied, four have been chosen to receive yearlong fellowships, including $500-a-month stipends.

Sometime soon, after the walls go up and the artists move in, a formerly mothballed pair of connected buildings on Lake Street will begin their next chapter.
What will open in this space, called Carver Bank, in homage to its past as Nebraska's first black-owned bank, is an artist-in-residence program.
