It all started with a couple of friends talking about music.
When you really get down to it, that's how our new Aromas location in Benson began.
My musician husband was talking with Ben Shafer about community and the arts and the vision of the 402 Arts Collective in North Omaha, where we live. Ben is the executive director of this nonprofit located on the corner of 60th Ave. and Maple. You can learn more about them on their website, http://402artscollective.org/, but basically they are committed to supporting the arts and training the next generation in music and the visual arts here in Omaha. They have a recording studio and individual and group lesson spaces onsite, as well as after-school programs that they offer in a handful of public schools.
