The renamed Lincoln Center Emerging Artist Awards will feature two recipients of the Martin E. Segal Award and one recipient of the newly established Hunt Family Award. This award honors 11 emerging artists, giving every organization on the Lincoln Center campus a chance to celebrate its rising stars.

The Martin E. Segal Award was established in 1986 by Lincoln Center’s Board of Directors to honor Martin Segal’s commitment to supporting and developing the careers of up-and-coming artists. Since that time, Lincoln Center has celebrated over 65 emerging artists in connection with this program.

The newly established Hunt Family Award will be given annually to the honoree nominated by Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. This recognition was created by Lincoln Center Board member David Hunt and his wife Alice, in honor of his parents Margot Bowie and Alan Reeve Hunt, and their dedication to the arts and its future.
