Lubbock, TX is 350 miles from any other cities of any significant size. Lubbock did not have a visible art presence until the Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts, LHUCA, came into being through the hard work and perseverance of a great many dedicated individuals. LHUCA has become a major influence for the arts in this area and is rapidly gaining prestige throughout the state. LHUCA's First Friday Art Trail has been drawing crowds of as many as 4,000 and those crowds continue to grow as the event becomes more textured. Because of LHUCA success other cultural based non profits are scrambling to move into Lubbock's down town area and we are rapidly growing a vital and sustainable arts district.
