An Evening to Celebrate the Arts in Lincoln

42nd Annual Mayor’s Arts Awards

Pinnacle Bank Arena
Tuesday, April 14, 2020

Using Beethoven’s 250th anniversary as inspiration, the 42nd Mayor’s Arts Awards, and all of LAC’s arts engagement programming, will be thematically linked by the idea of Joy. Art and music can be used as an expression of joy, even when things are hard. Art can help us during times when other things cannot. For many great artists, writers and musicians throughout history the creative process has been cathartic. This can be true for all of us.
