Mission Statement

The LUX Center for the Arts is dedicated to transforming lives through art. We are a community of art lovers providing education through art classes, artist in residency programs, gallery exhibitions, and community outreach. We believe the LUX can help people make meaningful connections to art regardless of who they are.


LUX Center for the Arts is truly Lincoln's community arts center, a vital resource for the visual arts in Nebraska.

The LUX offers year-round art classes for children, youth, and adults in ceramics, painting, drawing, glass, mixed media, and metals/jewelry. The quality of instruction sets the LUX apart. Classes are taught by artists/teachers in our Artist-in-Residence program, which each year brings four professional, well-educated, emerging artists/teachers to Lincoln to teach, in exchange for studio space, materials, and a solo exhibition.

Our outreach programs expand our community impact. Our outreach program was developed to provide art-making classes and workshops to low-income school children and the elderly, Alzheimer's patients, cancer survivors, incarcerated youth, and other groups. Two outreach programs stand out - the classes we provide to four Title 1 Lincoln Elementary schools and the classes we provide to incarcerated children at Lancaster County Youth Services, supported by your donations and our community partners.

The LUX holds a sterling reputation as a place to view and experience challenging, stimulating art. Recent exhibitions included artists Charley Friedman, Ryan Crotty, Nancy Friedemann-Sánchez, Gail Kendall, and more. Each month, we feature new exhibitions from local, regional, and national artists.
