LJS Feature: Lux Center for the Arts Unveils Newly Renovated Space

Wednesday, November 7, 2018

The Lux Center for the Arts has reopened its doors to visitors after completing a major renovation project aimed at bringing its century-old home into the modern era.

The one-time University Place City Hall, completed in 1914, was annexed by the City of Lincoln in 1924.

Renovations, including vaulted ceilings and coated windows to protect the works of art, have modernized the building, but many charming older features remain, such as a 100-year-old floor built using sand likely sourced from local rivers and streams, an original vault door and bars from an old jail cell in one of the offices.

Executive Director Susan Kriz said the goal of the renovation project was to keep the walls and original fixtures as unchanged as possible, and to keep with the spirit of the gallery's namesake, Gladys Lux.
