Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts in Lubbock, Texas Unveils PlainsCapital Bank Entrance

During an outdoor ceremony on June 7, the Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts (LHUCA) in Lubbock, Texas unveiled the PlainsCapital Bank entrance in honor of the Bank’s $150,000 donation. PlainsCapital Bank’s partnership with LHUCA began in 2004 with their pledge to sponsor $50,000 per year over a three-year period.

More than 60 people attended the unveiling ceremony including John Owens, Lubbock region chairman, Louise Hopkins Underwood, PlainsCapital Bank advisory board members and LHUCA board members. The PlainsCapital Bank entrance was created to honor the Bank for their commitment to the arts and their continued community support over the past nine years. Included on the plaque above the entrance is a quote by George Washington that reads: “To encourage literature and art is the duty that every good citizen owes to his country.”

LHUCA is a nonprofit organization that welcomes more than 45,000 visitors, 300 artists and 20 cultural organizations to their campus each year. Their nine buildings provide studio, meeting, exhibit, workshop, rehearsal and performance space for emerging and established artists and arts organizations. PlainsCapital Bank supports their mission to build a community where the arts are widely valued and visible, where aspiring and practicing artists are supported and where all citizens have the opportunity to explore and develop their own artistic creativity.
