"2018 is also the 50th anniversary of the Lincoln Arts Council, an agency that has helped to make this a great community," said Mayor Chris Beutler. "The Mayor's Arts Awards in May is our opportunity to thank the Arts Council, to honor the contributions of the award winners and to celebrate the outstanding arts and culture we enjoy in the Capital City."

Nomination forms are available by calling the LAC at 402-434-2787 or printing a form from the LAC website, A panel of community members will select the winners for these awards:

Nominators are asked to select a category or categories they feel would be most appropriate for their nominees, but the judges may consider the nominee for other categories as well. Nomination forms from the previous year are automatically resubmitted, and updates are accepted. A list of previous winners is available by contacting the LAC at 402-434-2787.

The public is encouraged to submit names of members of the arts community who have died since the last awards ceremony in June 2017 for memorial recognition.
