Your gift of just $25 helps us reach our year-end goal.
Invest in LCA today.
Your gift to the LCA annual fund supports all the things that we do, art exhibitions that change every three months; year-round art classes for all age ranges that span a range of art topics; our summer Art Festival that provides an entry point into the arts for thousands of residents and visitors, and our amazing long-standing art education program for after-school children in Michigan City, where art has been significantly reduced from the regular school day.
The funds we raise through memberships and individual donations account for 31% of our budget – a component essential to our success.
There is so much to come in 2016; a year when the LCA is embracing the mantra BE BOLD. Be bold in our exhibitions, our events, our choices, our communications. Michigan City is galvanized for change like never before, poised to re-launch itself as a major destination and cultural hub regionally and nationally. The LCA is a leader in this initiative and is likewise on the cusp of a significant evolution. Won’t you help us make that leap by making a gift to LCA’s annual fund today?
“…arts and culture make substantial contributions to local economic development, livability, and cultural industry competitiveness.”
quote from: A White Paper for The Mayors’ Institute on City Design, a leadership initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with the United States Conference of Mayors and American Architectural Foundation.
