Lincoln/Lancaster County Habitat for Humanity and Hildegard Center for the Arts have teamed up for an exciting public arts project for Lincoln called “Doorways to Hope”.  Based on a theme of “hope and new beginnings” they've chosen nineteen area artists to create works of art that use will use doors (any door) as their inspiration and starting point.
