The Lensic Honors Nancy Zeckendorf

All News

This April, the Lensic celebrates Nancy Zeckendorf, whose determination saved the historic Lensic theater and ushered in a new era of thriving arts in Santa Fe. Alongside her late husband Bill, Nancy created a place for performance to shine, and has been steadfast in ensuring the Lensic continues to prosper.

Nancy’s fortitude is a rarity, a gift, and a model for the kind of generosity that changes lives. On this occasion, we honor Nancy and her legacy, which has touched all who value the arts in Santa Fe. As it is also Nancy’s 90th birthday, there is much to celebrate!

This event is at capacity, but please be in touch if you’d like to join the waitlist. We’d also love to hear any tributes to Nancy you may have as we honor her this April. Email comments and tributes to Mandy Burkholder,

We also have a notebook in the Lensic lobby if you’d like to stop by and write a tribute or birthday wish to Nancy.
