Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts
Lincoln Center is one of the world’s leading cultural institutions and the largest performing arts complex in the world. Located in the heart of New York City, it is home to 11 arts organizations, including the Metropolitan Opera, the New York Philharmonic, the New York City Ballet, and The Juilliard School. In 2014-15, Lincoln Center had 6.5 million visitors, contributed $2.4 billion to New York’s economy, and created 16,000 jobs.
Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts oversees campus operations while hosting superb artistic programming and providing robust community outreach programs all year long. Its mission is to share the world’s best arts with the broadest possible audiences—including young audiences.
Looking to get more involved? The Young Patrons of Lincoln Center (YPLC) are culturally-minded New Yorkers in their 20s through 40s. They attend a wide variety of performances, champion the importance of culture in our everyday lives, and help build a base of future arts patrons. Members have access to exclusive events throughout the year—like performance outings, parties, artist meetups, and educational activities—as well as exciting leadership and volunteer opportunities.
All funds raised support Lincoln Center Education, which focuses on keeping the arts in schools, leveling the playing field for disadvantaged youth, and engaging families from all backgrounds in the fantastic work being done at Lincoln Center. To contribute to these vital works while socializing with fellow art enthusiasts, join the YPLC.
