Lyndon House Arts Center

April 8, 2020 STILL CLOSED

What a world we are all currently sharing at the moment.  Surreal, yet very real. 

However, art and culture lives before, during and at the end of a crisis.  Art is a place for solace, a place to look deeply into our humanity and a space to hopefully find some beauty or even joy.  As you all know the Arts Center is closed due to the COVID-19 epidemic.  But all of us are working to bring our programs to the social media platforms in order to support this creative and engaged community.  

Please visit our Facebook and Instagram to view #45JuriedShowOnLine and #ArtsCenterOnLine (also on top of the left side menu here) with upcoming segments entitled Art@Home with Toni Carlucci, ShelterInPlaceStudioVisits with Beth Sale and more.  

Follow us, share us, and send us some of those wonderful (hearts).
