Lincoln Arts Council Projects

Projects are an integral part of the work of Lincoln Arts Council.  Be it a wonderful event or outreach programming, our offerings evolve to meet community needs.

Lincoln Arts Festival

The Lincoln Arts Festival is an annual event held each September at SouthPointe Pavilions in Lincoln, NE. The festival features a wide variety of locally and nationally recognized artists, entertainment, and youth activities.

Mayor's Arts Awards

The Mayor's Arts Awards is a celebration of the arts which formally honors contributions and achievements in the Lincoln community. This gala event is held at the Lied Center for Performing Arts each June.

The National Arts Program®

The National Arts Program® is a way for City of Lincoln Employees and their families to show Lincoln their creative side!

Arts in the Community

Lincoln is one of a growing group of cities using art in public places to invigorage neighborhood energy and enthusiasm, building community involvment, and improve the quality of life on our streets. 

Arts Education

The Lincoln Arts Council is committed to furthering the impact of art in people's lives by conducting arts education and residency projects in the community.


Lincoln Arts Council is fortunate to have a great group of AmeriCorps members who serve the community through the arts.  Hands-on training along with workshops and meetings provide skill building opportunities for all members.

Past Projects

As we conduct new projects, past projects will be moved to this spot as an archive.

Special Thanks

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.
