The Organization
Lincoln Center Institute for the Arts in Education, established in 1975 and located
in New York City, is the educational cornerstone of Lincoln Center for the
Performing Arts, Inc. It is the leading organization in developing skills of
observation, imagination, and creativity through guided encounters with the visual
and performing arts. Over the past 35 years, Lincoln Center Institute has shared its
unique method of education with more than 20 million students, teachers, college
