Art is for everyone and everywhere, because art heals.


Participation in the arts supports emotional and mental health, which in turn feeds our ability to maintain physical health. In our ongoing effort to bring Arts Center programming to everyone in our community, we have joined with organizations throughout Douglas County to support physical and mental health during the Covid-19 pandemic.

We play an active role in community arts, participating in city-wide projects, providing opportunities to artists, and offering inspiring creative experiences for people of all ages. During the Covid-10 pandemic we have tailored our programming to be sure that regardless of means or location, every person in our community would have access to performances, classes and exhibitions. We are here to meet you wherever you want to be.

Art should never be out of reach. While many of our gallery exhibitions and events are free and open to the public, we also offer financial aid making it possible for any community member with an interest in taking a class to participate Arts Center opportunities. Our generous business partners, big-hearted donors, and loyal membership continue to help us offer free events and a robust financial aid fund. This fund supports arts education for more than 800 individuals each year. From the arts-based preschool and dance, to classes and professional development workshops, we believe that anyone with an interest in the arts should have access to the programs we provide.


Whether you choose to visit our building or connect with us online,
please join us at the Lawrence Arts Center to feed your mind, body and soul.
