P Street, from Antelope Creek to Ninth Street, will be the backdrop to a free public art event that will offer everything from performance art and dance to situational sculpture. 

The two-day event will take place Sept. 21-22, at the same time downtown Lincoln will host the Lincoln Calling music festival and the Lincoln Arts Festival, said Robert Ladislas Derr, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln art professor who is organizing the event.  

The recruitment process has started, with a curator from Germany, Matthias Ulrich of Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt, helping with the selection. 

This will be something different, something that activates and showcases P Street with its wide sidewalk area, said Terry Uland, president of the Downtown Lincoln Association.
