LUX CENTER FOR THE ARTS
The LUX Center for the Arts makes art happen in Lincoln. In our classrooms, youth and adults discover the joys of pottery, printmaking, painting, jewelry, drawing and more. Throughout the year our Art Van takes art classes to at-risk youth, low-income schools, cancer patients and others that benefit from having a first-hand art experience. The LUX galleries and store represent the highest caliber work of local, regional, and national artists, exhibited in more than 18 shows annually.
THE ROBERT HILLESTAD TEXTILES GALLERY
The Robert Hillestad Textiles Gallery educates and increases awareness of the rich traditions of art, craft, design, and material culture expressed through the exhibition of all forms of textiles and apparel.
The gallery is dedicated to Dr. Robert Hillestad, an internationally renowned fiber artist and Professor Emeritus of Textiles, Merchandising and Fashion Design
INTERNATIONAL QUILT MUSEUM
The International Quilt Museum's mission is to build a global collection and audience that celebrate the cultural and artistic significance of quilts. The museum has the world's largest publicly held quilt collection, dating from the early 1700s to present and representing more than 50 countries. We hold memberships with the American Alliance of Museums and Association of Academic Museums and Galleries. We enjoy a partnership with the North American Reciprocal Museum Association (NARM) and Blue Star Museums, honoring active members of our military and their families with free admission between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
