The LUX Center for the Arts makes art happen in Lincoln. In our classrooms, youth and adults discover the joys of pottery, printmaking, painting, jewelry, drawing and more. Throughout the year our Art Van deLUX takes art classes to at-risk youth, low-income schools, cancer patients and others that benefit from having a first-hand art experience. The LUX galleries and store represent the highest caliber work of local, regional, and national artists, exhibited in more than 18 shows annually. 

LUX Center for the Arts is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
