Mission Statement

The mission of LUX Center for the Arts is to enhance the lives of a diverse public through the visual arts by providing exceptional learning opportunities in contemporary art, craft, and design. These opportunities, honoring the legacy of arts educator Gladys M. Lux, include art classes, residence programs, gallery exhibitions, and community outreach.

Description

LUX Center for the Arts is a non-profit art center that offers experiences to suit a wide range of interests and tastes. We teach art classes for youth and adults in pottery, printmaking, painting, jewelry, glass, and fibers. Classes are held at the art center or can be taken off-site with the Art Van de LUX program. Exhibitions in two galleries and a gift gallery represent the highest caliber art work of local, regional, and national artists.

The only organization of its kind in Lincoln, coupled with its commitment to community outreach and an artist-in-residence program, makes LUX Center for the Arts an important resource for the visual arts for our community. We collaborate with other organizations and businesses to bring the best programs possible for you.

Over 450 fine art prints collected by the art center’s benefactor, Gladys M. Lux, are preserved in the Gladys M. Lux Historical Gallery. Selections of prints are always on display with information that relates to the history and significance of each piece. This provides an opportunity for the community to see artwork by some of the most significant artists of the early and mid twentieth century, including: Guy Pene DuBois, Joseph Hirsch, Dois Emrick Lee, Fletcher Martin, Georges Schreiber, Margurite Zorach, and many others
