Introducing "Arts for Lawrence"

Introducing: Arts for Lawrence. After having such a successful year, we sat down and wanted to plan out what will help us to continue to grow for the upcoming years. With that, we decided a name that better described who we are, and what we do would be beneficial. Out of that, came Arts for Lawrence, and we officially unveiled our new name and logo at our Patron's Party this past weekend and it was well received! Thank you to Gary Schmitt for our amazing logo, and our brand new website will be coming in January.

Thank you to all of our patrons, donors, sponsors and supporters for helping to make us a great arts organization for Lawrence!
