Lexington Arts & Crafts Society :: 75th Anniversary

Lexington Arts & Crafts Society :: 
75th Anniversary Celebration
August 31 - September 18, 2010
Lexington Arts and Crafts Society, Lexington, MA

Lexington Arts And Crafts Society (LACS) is celebrating their 75th year in 2010. A series of special events will be held as a tribute to their founders and current members and to thank the community for their continued support.

The Lexington Arts and Crafts Society was founded in 1935 when a group of artists and craftspersons met and drew up a constitution with the objective "to foster in the community a more active interest in the arts and crafts and to encourage higher artistic standards in the arts and handicrafts." In 1953, the Society broke ground for its own building at 130 Waltham Street. Designed by Marjorie Pierce, this art center was built entirely through the efforts of Society members. The building was dedicated the next year, and the first exhibit and fair were held.
