LUX ART INSTITUTE THE VALISE PROJECT
SITE HISTORY BUILDING PEOPLE FUNDING NEWS PARTICIPATE
lux art institute
Titled “institute” and not “museum,” Lux’s concept is both dynamic and novel: to foster the creation of art inspired by Southern California’s natural habitat. Lux attracts nationally and internationally recognized artists to our region for its artist-in-residence program and will be the only institution in the country with a residence for the artist as part of the facility. While onsite, the artists produce commissioned works inspired by the natural world. In addition, Lux will foster insights into the creative process by staging opportunities for active dialogue between visitors and resident artists engaged in creating. Lux’s education outreach program of “Traveling Valises” brings original art to area classrooms and uses art as a springboard for creative thought as well as academic activities linked to California State Standards. Currently we are operating from temporary space on our site at 1550 South El Camino Real in Encinitas.
LUX RESIDENCY
