The Lawrence Arts Center is closely following the phased guidelines for public health outlined by the State of Kansas and Douglas County. We are adopting these protocols to:

  • Protect health and safety at the Lawrence Arts Center.
  • Ensure appropriate physical distancing.
  • Practice proper infection control.
  • Communicate openly with the public about our health protocols.

Dear Friends,

In the next months, we are looking forward to emerging from a quarantine that has fundamentally changed how we relate to our world. Throughout this ordeal, we have witnessed incredible strength, experienced a renewed connection to the community, and been inspired by people’s seemingly inexhaustible positivity. Lawrence, through it all, you never missed a step. Thanks to this quality of yours, we will emerge from isolation like a butterfly from its cocoon.

Embracing this new era as an opportunity, we have reinvented ourselves to explore new ways of making, experiencing, and enjoying art. As restrictions on public spaces and gatherings are eased, we will be thoughtful and cautious as we make plans to see you again in-person. Because we care deeply about everyone’s health and safety, we accept this new reality and will be mindful of our physical spaces and how we interact with them. Our programs, policies, and procedures will closely follow the phased guidelines for the public as outlined by the State of Kansas and Douglas County. We will continue to stay informed and adjust our policies to preserve public health for the long term.

The core of our work is to connect people, not only as a community but also with the essence of who they are as individuals. People seek us out to create, be inspired, and learn. The result builds a sense of belonging and growth. While there are many changes in the reality that lies ahead, the heart of the Lawrence Arts Center and the purpose of our work will not change. As artists, we remain the creators, connectors, conveners, and community builders. And as we step out of isolation into a new era, art and creativity will be tools that build the bridge between our past and our present.
