Many people know that the Lyric Theatre and Cultural Arts Center has a Theatre. However, did you know that the Lyric Theatre and Cultural Arts Center is comprised of a Art Gallery and Museum. Yes, this means that the Lyric Theatre is your one-stop shop to see some of the nation’s leading artists and upcoming artists. The Lyric Cultural Arts Gallery & Museum are open to the public Tuesday -Friday from 9am – 5pm and Saturday 1pm -5pm. Also, the Lyric Cultural Arts Gallery & Museum are FREE to the public.
The name of the Lyric Theatre’s Cinema calls upon the history of its past. The statement of “Let’s go to the picture show,” rings clear that it’s time to go to the movies. Most important, when the phrase “picture show” is uttered, we want people to know that the Lyric Theatre and Cultural Arts Center is the place to go to see films that remind them of their youth and of classic films.
The Lyric has created an outlet for our region to help out the less fortunate closer to home. By the end of the 7-month program, we hope to clothe 250 of Lexington’s disadvantaged little girls. These simple summer dresses, created from pillowcases and ribbons, will bring pride and dignity to young girls who may not always feel such emotions. In the summer of 2012 we will then teach young girls how to sew these dresses for Haitian and African young girls in need. We want these young girls to experience how volunteering can teach them more about themselves and their world while preparing them for their future along with connecting them to their community.
