2011 National Arts Program Comes to a Close

The National Arts ProgramThe 2011 City of Lincoln National Arts Program concluded on Friday, July 22 with a closing reception and awards ceremony that was held downtown in the Candy Factory Building.  Award winners were recognized and given cash and scholarship awards by City Councilman, Carl Eskridge.  All award winning pieces of artwork were on display for friends and family members to view during the reception.
