The Best in Contemporary Art

The mission of the exhibitions program is to enrich the community by presenting the best in contemporary art. To that end, the Lawrence Arts Center features 20-25 exhibitions each year from diverse artists in all media, ranging from local preschool children to internationally known artists from around the world.  Such richness reflects the community that the Arts Center serves.  Individual artists may apply year-round to display their work in the Arts Center’s galleries.
