Haymarket Gallery Emerging Artists Scholarship
The Haymarket Emerging Artists Scholarship was established in 1996. Lincoln has long been recognized as a community filled with creative people, incredible works of public art and unique opportunities to experience all levels and methods of artistic expression.
