Our 15 year Anniversary Charity Day raised money for the LUX center for the Arts. 100% of all tattoos and body piercings went to the LUX.
We also accepted an incredible amount donations directly to the LUX. Relentless Merch was screening special event T-shirts live and donated the profits. We had a raffle for a $300 tattoo.
We are so grateful for the incredible turnout! and so proud we can contribute to such an amazing community, who showed up to give so generously.
All in all, we raised: $6,671.00 for the LUX center for the arts!! That is about 1/3 of their annual budget for the the art van, or 12 six week classes in the art van, or 90 scholarships. Thank you everyone for all your generous donations!
What is the LUX Art Van: Staffed by artists and educators Art Van deLUX contains all of the equipment and materials needed to facilitate a wide variety of hands-on art classes, such as ceramics, painting, drawing, jewelry making, printmaking, beadwork and textiles and general arts education. The LUX Art Van travels to low-income schools, St. Elizabeths, Youth Services Center and so many more places with all of the supplies that are necessary for that certain class, workshop or activity.
LUX Center for the Arts is a non-profit art center that offers experiences to suit a wide range of interests and tastes. We teach art classes for youth and adults in pottery, printmaking, painting, jewelry, glass, and fibers. Classes are held at the art center or can be taken off-site with the Art Van deLUX program. Exhibitions in two galleries and a gift gallery represent the highest caliber art work of local, regional, and national artists.
As the only organization of its kind in Lincoln, coupled with its commitment to community outreach and an artist-in-residence program, LUX Center for the Arts is an important resource for the visual arts in our community.
