Jenneth Webster, who served as Director of Community Programing at Lincoln Center for 28 years, passed away on April 10. Under her artistic leadership, Lincoln Center Out of Doors grew into one of New York’s and the country’s most significant outdoor multi-disciplinary festivals. She was tireless and indefatigable in her efforts and ideas for extending Lincoln Center’s community outreach, and was responsible for establishing the beloved La Casita program. From an early age she became aware of the importance of, in her own words, “the impact of living arts on people.” Over the decades, through Jenneth’s efforts, thousands of people and countless performers came together on Lincoln Center’s outdoor spaces to celebrate music, dance, spoken word, and community.
