Contemporary Art Exhibitions

Find Your Art, Find Your Community

Our exhibitions program enriches the community by presenting the best in contemporary art.

We actively engage audiences through multi-disciplinary exhibitions that question and inspire. Our galleries are free and open to the public all year round.

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. Such richness reflects the community that the Arts Center serves. Many of the original artworks on display are available for purchase. Learn more about the artists and their art by visiting our galleries.

Art is for Everyone

Making Art Accessible to All

Lawrence Arts Center is here to ensure anyone—of any age and any background—can connect with a supportive community and flex their creative muscles. With contemporary exhibitions, performances, and an array of visual arts education classes for adults and kids, everyone will find something that’s right for them.

Our primary state-of-the-art facility at 940 New Hampshire St. features classrooms, studios, theatres, and more. To further support the community, we also have a space for classes and rehearsal at 10th & Mass Studios.
