CHAMBER DONATES SEASONAL SIGNS TO THE ARTS

Each year the Lincoln Arts Council awards grant funding to member arts organizations to assist with their community outreach projects. In 2012 the Lincoln Arts Council helped to fund Angels Theatre Company's Angels and Caregivers, including the production of two plays; Lincoln Municipal Band's seven free outdoor concerts in Antelope Park; Lincoln's Symphony Orchestra's Young People's Concerts, which give more than 4,000 4th grade students the opportunity to see and hear an orchestra; and Sheldon Art Association's Art in Society, an education program for high school students teaching critical thinking and art-making skills.

Fourth of July signs

The Lux Center for the Arts and Sheldon Museum of Art will showcase the Fourth of July Seasonal Signage at the September First Friday Art Walk event. Guests attending will have the opportunity to bid on the signs in a silent auction to raise funds for the Lincoln Arts Council's project grants. Both galleries will be open from 5-8 p.m.

The Fourth of July Seasonal Signs were displayed last month in downtown Lincoln as a part of the new Lincoln branding campaign. The original messaging and bright graphics caught the attention of many locally and nationally. The signs generated over 13.5 million views on Reddit and nearly 400 "likes" on the Lincoln, NE Facebook page. Thanks to the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce for donating the signs to the Lincoln Arts Council to benefit the arts community.

ABOUT THE FIRST FRIDAY ART WALK

First Friday Art Walks are held the first Friday of each month. Lincoln's Galleries and establishments open their doors to the public exhibiting a great variety of artwork. On a typical walk you may find paintings, sculpture, drawings, mixed media, pottery, and jewelry with an occasional music ensemble mixed in. For a list of participating galleries and exhibitions visit artscene.org.

The Lincoln Chamber of Commerce released the new Lincoln brand in June. Crafted and designed by two Lincoln advertising agencies, Archrival and Bailey Lauerman, the brand's purpose is to position Lincoln for future successes in attracting and retaining young professionals. Residents of the community will continue to see the brand evolve through planned activities and initiatives.
