From January 10 - 29, LCA's galleries will be closed to the public in preparation for our next exhibition.

History

In 1975, John G. Blank purchased a vacant library building to provide a home for Michigan City’s new Center for the Arts. In 1978, this building officially became the John G. Blank Art Center, which was incorporated as a not-for-profit organization.

In 2002, local Michigan City residents and cultural enthusiasts, Jack and Shirley Lubeznik donated an office building at 101 W. 2nd Street. The center was then renamed as the Jack & Shirley Lubeznik Center for the Arts (LCA).

Impact

LCA serves as a vibrant showcase for exhibitions and programs and is a vital hub for the community. Approximately 1,800 children annually enjoy educational tours and onsite artmaking at LCA, while many more receive visual, literacy-based and performance art instruction through the outreach programs we offer in collaboration with area after school programs and various community partners. In this time of COVID-related health concerns, we have seamlessly transitioned much of our activity to inspired virtual programs with the goal to connect meaningfully with our local and regional communities.
