About Us

 The Lumberyard Arts Center is located in the heart of the Baldwin City entertainment district, adjacent to Sullivan Square with nearby restaurants and bars. A creative arts complex, we strive to create - play - innovate with our community. Public art, live local music, community theatre, rotating arts exhibits and an arts boutique foster a dynamic vibe throughout the year. A 501 (c) 3 nonprofit, our mission is accomplished with a strong board of directors, a full time director and dedicated volunteers.
