In the 12 years that I have lived here so much has developed here. Thank you to Louise for making it happen. Changing exhibits and so many other things. Grounds in back so gorgeus and a stage is being built.

In short, this is a terrific experience I did not know for two years existed until I ran into it and its myriad of gallereis in the same neighborhood on a random 1st Friday. Priovate meeting rooms, rotating works of art from a wide ranging group of artists, live theater, music release venue and more. Thank you Louise Hopkins for... More

This privately financed and supported art center is a growing campus of creative activity. Venues for specific purposes are all within walking distance of working artists' studios, clay creations, metal working as well as four distinct galleries in the main building. The variety of media and imagination seems endless.

Music, local artists, welding, visit with artists and classes available. The entire town opens up on the day. Trollies take you from place to place.

Unique atmosphere! I have attended a couple of plays there and the atmosphere is really different from other venues in Lubbock. The theater was a great intimate setting for "Hairspray" and the Ice House was well suited for the "Madrigal Dinner".

We enjoyed the the First Friday Art Trail starting here and winding through 22 Arts venues. There were some refreshments and live music as well as art work to view or purchase.We didn't use it but there was a free trolley service to travel between studios and galleries. I was especially impressed with the clay studio with some unique rusted... More
