Topic: Lawrence Arts Center. Your comments requested.

The Arts center is doing some good things. There have been several good shows in the past year and we are grateful for the "Unsung" and "Munny" shows. It is good to see young artist taken seriously. Continuing to provide space to Emu theater, offering good classes and bringing in resident artists are a few things that I would like to see continue. It's hard to say wether or not the Arts center is doing it's job. What is the job of the arts center? It definitely does not feel like the center of anything especially this rad art scene that has arisen in the past few years. I think it is important to continue the family vibe but be open to more avant-guard. Encourage silliness, edginess and downright stupidity from time to time. Let us paint the side of the building and get some sculptures in that huge unused lawn!I think the Arts Center is a valuable asset to the community. I also think that is could be better. Get some young artists on the board to help stir some things up and make it a bit more enticing to visit on a regular basis.
