Heart of the Arts Award
Recognizes an individual or organization for outstanding volunteer dedication to the arts or for making a major overall impact on the arts in Lincoln.
Supporting the arts in Lincoln comes naturally. Lincoln has a rich legacy of arts patrons and we must continue this tradition because the arts, in all its forms, music, literature, painting, sculpture, dance, theatre, architecture, are what makes us human and keeps us civilized. Lincoln is blessed with an abundance of engaging people whose vision has nurtured and fostered a welcoming home for the creative class. Exploring, engaging, encouraging, promoting and supporting our community’s artists and artisans is as natural to me as my morning cup of coffee. – Laurie Richards
