“A Collection of Works by Self-Taught Artists”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2012

Great enthusiasm of the staff and very unique art. Shows what can happen when someone watches their internal movie and gives concrete expression to it.

“Lucas Kansas turned me on to Outsider Art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2009

I visited the Grassroots Arts Center in Lucas, KS back in 2003, and was recently reminded of that trip when I saw the "Rare Visions--Detour Art" show in Kansas City at the Belger Arts Center.

Grassroots is a jewel. It is part of a growing community of arts lovers who realize that you don't have to be trained in art to be creative, or to have valid things to say in visual form. Many of these artists are not fully understood or appreciated by those around them.

I came away from my visit feeing creatively recharged, and eager to learn more about this varied and unexpected kind of artwork. I think anyone who loves art, has an open mind, and appreciates spirited creativity will be amply rewarded by a trip to Lucas and the Grassroots Arts Center.

“Lucas is Something Else.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2008

I have been going to the Grassroots Art Center ever since I was little and every time I go it seems that they have something new. Every visit varies, but it is always worth the tour, because the art they have there is unique and awesome to look at. Also Lucas the town it self is very interesting just like the Art Center, it is definitely worth the time to go and look at!

“Lucas is Weird!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2003

The Grassroots Art Center has assembled the works of self- taught artist from across the state of Kansas. Expect the unexpected from outdoor yard environments to interior exhibits created from limestone, wood, metal, pull-tabs, and chewing gum. It's a one-of-a-kind place. Worth the trip!
