The Best in Contemporary Art
The mission of the Lawrence Arts Center’s exhibitions program is to enrich the community by presenting the best in contemporary art and to actively engage audiences through multi-disciplinary exhibitions that question and inspire. 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 and website.
We are working hard to make your gallery experience SAFE by limiting occupancy, requiring masks, and asking all visitors to self-screen before entering. If you have additional questions prior to your visit, PLEASE CALL 785.843.2787 OR EMAIL US.
