Lewistown Art Center
The Lewistown Art Center (LAC) promotes and provides engaged access to the arts, arts education, and cultural experiences in Central Montana. This includes Hands on Art (a 3-day-a-week after-school program), Youth Programming in the Summer, Adult Social Nights, and cultural events like monthly gallery receptions (First Friday of the month!), Shakespeare in the Park, WinterSongs, and so much more!
The historic Lewistown Art Center, located in Lewistown, Montana, was formed 45 years ago when the Lehman Bunkhouse was joined to the Von Tobel Carriage House on the corner of 8th Avenue and Broadway, across from the Fergus County Court House. In 2009, the Art Center was relocated and can now be found on the corner of Main Street and 4th Avenue.
The Art Center is a hub of activity Tuesday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m and Saturday 10:00 am - 4:00 pm. Admission is always free for monthly gallery shows featuring a wide range of Montana and intermountain artists. The Gift Shop, located inside the Art Center features art and hand-crafted giftware from local and regional Montana artists consigning ceramics, jewelry, sculpture, paintings, prints, photography, books, CDs and much more.
