The Arts Found a Way!

Mayor Leirion Gaylor Baird and the Lincoln Arts Council hosted a fast and fun Mayor’s Arts Awards on November 8th at the Johnny Carson Center for Emerging Media Arts at UNL.

The Theme was “The Arts Find a Way” based on the billboard artwork of local artist Danny Reneau as part of the Lincoln Billboard Art Project. Kokyo Taiko Drummers brought the audience to their feet and Emcee DeWayne Taylor led the way for the 13 honorees to be celebrated by their colleagues, friends and our community.

The evening was live-streamed as well with help from Basement Creators Network. If you weren't able to celebrate with us in person or join us online last Monday you can watch it at
