The mission of the Lyons Arts & Humanities Commission (LAHC) is to beautify the streets of downtown Lyons, promote local artists, and educate the viewing public on artistic inspirations and procedures.
The LAHC meets on the second Tuesday of each month, beginning at 4:30 p.m. in the Effie Banta Room at the Lyons Regional Library unless otherwise noted. Updates to the commission's schedule will be listed on the Town calendar.
Each quarter, the LAHC coordinates salon-style art shows in the Shirley F. Johnson Council Chambers in Lyons Town Hall, to exhibit artwork by local artists. Exhibitions and show themes are updated quarterly; the exhibits are open to public viewing during Town Hall hours of operation, when the room is available*.
The exhibitions are open to art of all mediums, and artists of all ages, abilities, and artistic interpretation; any artwork (that can be reasonably accommodated in the space) in the theme of the exhibition is welcomed. Reservations are not required. Artists keep 100% of sales.
