House of Art

An Omaha couple’s reputation for adventurous, fearless collecting has raised eyebrows in the art world on a national level.  On a modest budget, Laura Vranes and John McIntyre have transformed a love of art into an immense collection of works from a variety of unknown, emerging artists locally and beyond. In the last decade, this middle-class couple has quietly amassed what is said to be one of the most important contemporary art collections in the Midwest, with a focus on street art. With nearly 500 works on display, salon style, art fills nearly every possible space in the house.

Here's a video tour featuring 360 Degrees of Art in their living room.
