A Little Recognition Goes A Long Way.

Ron and Kitty Boeddeker founded the Henderson Art Association in 2001. Third Thursday began as a cooperative effort between the City of Henderson Redevelopment Department, the HAA Old Town Gallery, and City Lights Gallery in 2003. The Boeddekers were instrumental in helping establish an art scene in Henderson and artists/organizations have been volunteering ever since. Today, their legacy carries on as others continue to do great things for local arts and art education. Below are recent recipients of the 2010 Art Education Third Thursday ARTsWALK Recognition Awards. These awards represent appreciation of volunteer hours, talent, and devotion to Water Street District Arts.
