the local economy

Art brings tourism dollars to the local economy. Businesses that directly benefit from our work include dining, lodging, transportation, childcare, and shopping, just to name a few. 

underserved audiences

Money can be a significant factor prohibiting people from accessing art programs. We proudly offer "art aid," or financial gifts, to our community members in need.



Gone are the days we must travel downtown to enjoy local artistry. We are committed to laying the foundation for the future of our city as an arts and culture district.


Changing lives through art

Aiysha Kouma, 25


I've always used art as a way to cope with the struggles of everyday life.

"Dealing with post-partum depression, I needed the arts so much more than normal. I'm so glad [Arts for Lawrence] exists in my community."

Zachery Hansen, 72


This was the first time I've ever

seen a live theatre performance.

"I'm on a fixed income and don’t have the extra money to splurge on art experiences. [Arts for Lawrence] made my experience even more exciting. I especially loved seeing all the children in the play."

Thank you to our generous foundation partners and corporate sponsors! Nothing we do is possible without you.
