The Triumph of Youth
By Artist Watie White with Contributions of the Ƶ Community

“To tell a story of a place in a single image is a daunting task, for the simple problem that any person who describes a community they know is blind to all the perspectives that aren’t theirs.” -Watie White

Standing 33 feet wide and 25 feet tall, “The Triumph of Youth” is the most visible piece of public art in Ƶ. The project is a collaboration between artist Watie White and more than 50 Ƶ Public School students, staff and members of the Ƶ community. It is located on the scoreboard of Buell Stadium at 149th and Q Streets and faces outward so everyone passing by can enjoy it. The project was privately funded through the generous support of the Ƶ Public Ƶ Foundation, Penny and Frank Kowol, Addie and Robert Hollingsworth, and the Nebraska Arts Council and Nebraska Cultural Endowment.
