It is with much disappointment that Lubeznik Center for the Arts (LCA) announces the cancellation of the 2020 Lubeznik Arts Festival. This year would have marked the festival’s 39th year of hosting approximately 90 artists and artisans for the two-day event that attracts nearly 3,000 visitors. This year’s event was cancelled due to the concern over public health during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Janet Bloch, LCA’s Executive Director, stated, “The health of our staff and patrons is my number one responsibility. After much deliberation, the LCA team feels this is the most responsible position. We want to get back to business as soon as we can and as safely as possible. Hopefully, next year we will attract twice the number of visitors!”
LCA re-opened to the public on July 3rd for the exhibition Well-Behaved Women: Celebrating 100 Years of Women’s Suffrage. In order to keep guests safe, LCA is limiting attendance to 20 visitors at a time and requires everyone to wear masks. Tours can be arranged for groups of 12 or more. Please note that the art center will be closed on Tuesdays this summer. The hours are otherwise unchanged: M, W, Th and Fri 10 AM – 5 PM, Sat & Sun 11 AM – 4 PM, all Central Time.
