On January 22, 2016, the Wall Street Journal featured an article on the Legends at Lincoln Center: The Performing Arts Hall of Fame. Among those named as one of the 30 Founding Legends of Lincoln Center is Venable partner Gordon Davis.
Legends at Lincoln Center is the first hall of fame that honors the artists, leaders, and advocates whose exceptional creativity and tenacity have shaped, and continue to shape, the performing arts at Lincoln Center. The Founding Legends were selected exclusively by Lincoln Center and its resident organizations to acknowledge the visionaries who have worked tirelessly to create world-class arts organizations and a destination that is now visited by over five million people each year.
In addition to Mr. Davis, some of the selected Founding Legends include choreographer George Balanchine, longtime music director of the Metropolitan Opera James Levine, legendary composer Leonard Bernstein, philanthropist John D. Rockefeller, III, who was instrumental in Lincoln Center’s creation, former Congressman and New York City Mayor John V. Lindsay, and musician Wynton Marsalis.
