Greetings From the Director!
Happy New Year to all of our Lawndale friends!
I hope to see you all at Lawndale soon. We have so many exciting and provoking exhibitions and programs coming up in 2011 that you won't want to miss.
I would like to extend a special thanks to those of you who support us through contributions to our 2010 Annual Fund Campaign. Your enthusiasm and support for Lawndale makes what we do here everyday so meaningful.
Your contributions directly benefit contemporary art and artists at the grassroots, local level. You make it possible for Lawndale to continue to present quality exhibitions and programming free to everyone. You make Lawndale an exciting place to come out see some art. And...you enable us to look toward a bright future!
Many thanks and best wishes,
