Claire Hoppe

Heart of the Arts Award

Leadership comes in many forms. And so does inspiration. Claire Hoppe brought both of these to her friends and the arts community as well. As a tireless volunteer, a generous supporter, and an extraordinarily thorough attendee, Claire taught us how the arts are capable of enriching a whole life. Virtually every arts venue and discipline in Lincoln benefited from her attendance and support. We’re sorry this award comes a little late, not least because she loved a good party, but Claire’s zest for life should be celebrated and serve as a model for those of us who believe that the arts are essential to a well rounded life. We should all live so well, laugh so much and share our gifts as joyfully. Thanks Claire, for being the Heart of the Arts.

    In 2009 the Lincoln Arts Council received a generous gift from the estate of Ken Good, a portion of which was used to redevelop our website and establish an endowment. We offer our heart-felt thanks to Kenneth J. Good for his generosity and vision for a beautiful future.
