February 25th, 2020 | Kimberly Hwa Davis, Community Learning Specialist
Make Omaha is a family friendly, innovation and technology showcase celebrating local tech-driven makers, inventors and businesses who are using state-of-the-art tools in their work.
Meet Reagan Pufall, a local artist and educator. He is represented locally at the Roberta & Bob Rogers Gallery and is a full time instructor at IWCC where he teaches art and graphic design.
Introduce Yourself! – Who are you and what do you do for fun/work/education, etc?
I am a local artist and teacher. I make work that explores themes around future landscapes and how a civilization could be remembered in a cosmic sense.
What do you make?
Lately I’ve been making 3D scans and prints of people’s faces for a show planned next winter. Previously I have made a lot of scans and prints of praying mantises. I also make acrylic buildings and bas-reliefs using a laser cutter.
What are you planning to show at Make Omaha?
I am planning on showing the diverse array of the art I make. This would include 3D scans and prints of human faces, scans and prints of insects, bas-reliefs, and acrylic buildings.
What are you looking forward to seeing at Make Omaha from other participants?
I enjoy seeing the diverse application of 3D printing that is on display at Make Omaha.
What tech/maker-type stuff are you interested in getting in the future?
I am interested in large format 3D printing, diorama building, and robots.
Anything else you’d like to add?

Come see Reagan and all our other makers at Make Omaha on Saturday, March 14th from 10am – 3pm!
