Lincoln grain elevator to be covered in art as part of new initiative

The first project in Spreetail's new Elevate initiative will be to cover this grain elevator along Salt Creek Roadway near North 27th Street with 20-foot-by-60-foot billboard banners featuring submitted designs. The banners will be hung Aug. 31.

A grain elevator in north Lincoln is the first structure getting a makeover as part of a new initiative that seeks to beautify high-traffic parts of the city.

Local ecommerce firm Spreetail recently launched the program, called Elevate.

Its first project will be installing 13 pieces of artwork on the side of the Eastern Nebraska Grain LLC elevator located on Salt Creek Roadway, considered “a major eyesore for anyone entering Lincoln from North 27th Street." Full story>>
