See art differently. See art happen. Lux Art Institute is redefining the museum experience to make art more accessible and personally meaningful. At Lux, you don't just see finished works of art; you see the artistic process firsthand.

Lux works to:

  • Support artists in the development of new projects through a residency program, and share their discoveries with scholars, art patrons and a regional and national audience.
  • Educate and engage the community to foster an appreciation of the living artist and creative process.
  • Exhibit finished works from Lux residencies alongside the artist's other works and those of others who have influenced them.
  • Develop relationships with similar institutions to produce publications that interpret the work created in the residency program.
