Since its founding in 1935, LexArt has aspired to enrich the lives of people in our community and bring us together in a welcoming, supportive, and creative environment.  

 

Our Commitments and Beliefs:

  • To maintaining and furthering traditional craft, while engaging new voices, new perspectives, and exploring new technologies.

  • To making the arts accessible to all.

  • The desire to create is fundamental to our humanity, it teaches us about ourselves, each other, and fosters understanding and communication. 

  • The arts can strengthen and unify our community.

  • The arts are essential to an open, just, and sustainable society.

 

We work to infuse the arts into every aspect of our community life. We exist to provide service to our community. We strive to provide support and extend our resources to those in need and those seeking partnership and collaboration. We dedicate 10% of LexArt gallery sales proceeds to our scholarships and community partnerships programs.

                                       

                          --------  Your support makes it all possible  -------- 

Our Community Service comprises of the following:

  • Our annual high school exhibition, featuring the work of students from up to 10 area high schools.

  • Our annual high school scholarship program, offers cash awards to graduating seniors from five area high schools, pursuing careers in the arts.

  • Need-based membership dues and class tuition subsidy and forgiveness.

  • Class scholarships to clients of the Lexington Refugee Assistance Program and the Lexington Housing Assistance Board.

  • Welcoming artists from other area arts organizations to participate in art exhibitions and events.

  • Participating in initiatives coordinated by others in our community, such as the Chamber of Commerce’s Art Fair and Art Walk, Lexington Council for the Arts, Get Outdoors and Haiku Poem projects, the Economic Development Office’s Cultural District Partnership Group, and opening our grounds to artists for Lexington Open Studios.

  • Providing exhibit space for other area organizations to promote their work including: the Lexington Human Rights Committee, Refugee Artisans of Worcester, LexSeeHer and the Lexington Historical Society, Lexington Housing Assistance Board, Korean Cultural Society of Boston, New England Sculpture Society, Middlesex Community College, and the Chinese American Association of Lexington.
