LETURA IDIGIMA

Photographer, Art Bus LNK

Letura Idigima is an entrepreneur and artist based in Lincoln, Nebraska. Letura quit her full-time job at Lincoln Public Schools to pursue a career in photography. She now shoots weddings across the midwest, but that did not end her work to inspire creativity in the Lincoln community.

In June of 2020, Letura launched her non-profit Art Bus LNK as the first mobile art studio in this community. The mission of Art Bus LNK is to allow access to art to the youth of Lincoln.

The idea of Art Bus LNK started when Letura Idigima reached out to the youth community. She surveyed students asking about what community-provided resources they felt were lacking in Lincoln. After finding out many of these young artists had limited or no access to art supplies, Letura began dreaming about the possibility of a free mobile art studio for students.

Art Bus focuses on providing a free opportunity for youth to create & heal through art. After two years of interviews, fundraising, and endless support from the community, we were able to find the perfect bus. We are now preparing for our launch at the beginning of July. Thank you to everyone who has helped make this dream become a reality!
