Was privledged to work with Lubeznik staff on a successful Empty Bowls program to benefit the food pantries of LaPorte County and the Food Bank of Northern Indiana. By the coordinated use of their art programs with the county schools and after school programs, we created enthusiam not only for the fundraising results to feed the hungry but for the process of feeding them minds of our bowl creators -- Education in Art and education in Hunger relief both were successful. Another event is scheduled with the Lubeznik Center for February 2011 and we are looking forward to another successful partnership!
Really enjoy being involved with the Art Center. Admire what they do and how sophisticated this center is. At the same time I think there should be more community involvement. Not only outreach to schools and prison that is now part of the program, but also to all local artists. Being involved has been an exciting experience.
A jewel of a cultural resource in the region -- nothing comes close. One visit will tell you why. There's something for everyone taking place at the LCA --contemporary art exhibitions, concerts, extensive classes and workshops, prominent speakers and social events. The LCA also provides arts experiences for under-served children in the area filling in for what public education does not provide.
As a former staff member I know first hand that the LCA is being run well and by industry professionals. It is a critically important organization, bringing fresh & contemporary exhibits and programming to northwest Indiana. I look forward to watching them flourish. Know that when you send your dollars to the Lubeznik Center they are being spent well.
A CULTORAL OASIS IS A CULTURAL WASTELAND. THE CENTER BRINGS A VARIETY OF ARTS EXPERIENCES TO THE AREA. A MUCH NEEDED CONTRUBITION.
