Community Service Donation Request

As a community service the LCAA is helping out the Lancaster County Housing Authority with their request for donations of artwork to hang in the hallways of Farnum Street East and Church Street Towers in Lancaster city. If you are interested in donating 1 or 2 pieces of artwork, prints or photography, you may drop them off at the LCAA by Feb. 14th at the latest. (Please - no nudes or controversial subject matter.) Items will not be returned and will become the property of the Lancaster County Housing Authority. If you would like to be listed as a donor in the lobbies of the buildings, please let us know. You may remain anonymous if you prefer. This is a way to enhance the well being of their residents who are spending so much time indoors due to the pandemic.

Announcement!

Everyone coming into the building must wear a mask. We ask that you maintain social distancing of 6 feet or more. If you are feeling ill- please stay home! We have hand sanitizer available and we will be cleaning surfaces frequently. The building has been deep cleaned. We ask that you do not enter rooms marked staff only such as the offices, kitchen, storage rooms, etc. We ask that you follow these guidelines to keep you, your fellow members, LCAA staff and others safe!

In the Event of Inclement Weather

LCAA will follow the Lampeter-Strasburg School District decision to close or delay school opening.
If LS schools are closed due to inclement weather, LCAA will be closed as well.
When in doubt, call the office to see if gallery is open.

Inspiring Creativity Since 1936

We are the custodians for the next generation.
Please consider donating as you are able to help us reach our goal of $5,000.
