From our friends at BFF: “Reporters are flocking to Stinson Park, where it appears that an unidentified flying spaceship, labeled “MaMO,” has crashed into Earth. From what we can gather, the spaceship is from the planet of “Eye Know,” a fantastical realm created by artist Willow Stargirl. We’ve been told that BFF Omaha will be onsite, acting as delegates and inviting the public to take part in an otherworldly experience.” In addition to”EYEKNOW: The Alien World of Willow Stargirl,” you can also visit the BFF bar, right next door by the front gate, where all of the tips support BFF, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
