Kaneko in Omaha

I am really excited about the Kaneko project initiated by the internationally-known artist, Jun Kaneko. He has kept his studio in downtown Omaha despite many opportunities to move elsewhere, namely Japan. His works are huge! Recently, I've taken a few tours of the in-progress facilities that are The Kaneko . Here are some photos I took.
