The Scoop

Located in the heart of downtown, Lansing Art Gallery & Education Center provides public awareness, education and enjoyment of the visual arts by promoting the works of Michigan artists. We ensure that exhibits, educational programs and opportunities to purchase Michigan art are available to the public.

Join the movement! Help us re-imagine downtown Lansing as we once again transform Washington Square into a pop up art display! You can help Pop Up Art: Special Edition repurpose all twelve downtown newspaper kiosks to showcase artwork by Michigan artists. FREE "Newspapers" highlighting featured artists will be available at the kiosks throughout the summer of 2017. Your donation will help Lansing Art Gallery & Education Center support artists, host artist demonstrations, and coordinate food samplings throughout the summer to enhance the project.

The Fine Print

Pop Up Art: Special Edition II will showcase and support creativity, increasing collaboration with those who live, work, and play in Lansing! By unexpectedly activating underutilized newspaper kiosks as vibrant sites, Lansing Art Gallery will engage the community in the visual arts. With the help of volunteers, interns, staff, Board, and you, the gallery will present demonstrations by featured artists. Taking place throughout 2017, activities will inspire community commitment and civic action, and be free and accessible for all. Your contribution of at least $1 can help us reach our goal! 

Special Delivery: Art for All

Hosting activities that bring art outside the gallery walls and into the community is a significant opportunity for Lansing Art Gallery’s mission to build awareness, education and enjoyment of the visual arts by promoting Michigan artists. During the past six years, the gallery has provided four outdoor community exhibitions. City Streets, Art by the River, Sculptures in the ParkArtQuest, and Project Pop Up have provided more than one million viewers an arts experience at no cost!

Pop Up Art: Special Edition II will strengthen creative ideas, engage citizens, and provide integration of arts activities with other community events. Friendly, social interactions at these events will build a strong sense of community. A free application process has afforded artists of all economic circumstances the opportunity for participation. Pop Up Art: Special Edition II will serve as a catalyst in the creative development of our area artists, providing artistic development and fair payment for a variety of expertise and media.
