The Arts Council of Livingston Parish is a 501(c)3 non-profit professional arts organization whose mission is to promote art performances, training, and outreach by providing a diverse range of quality programs that entertain, educate and enrich the artistic, cultural and economic vitality of Livingston Parish.
To provide our artists opportunities to exhibit and sell their art in the ACLP gallery and other venues.
To provide "Art in Education" through visual and performing art classes in the elementary schools in Livingston Parish.
To provide visual and performing art instruction at art camps held at the ACLP gallery and "Camp Empowerment" program at the Lockhart Community Center on Martin Luther King Drive in Denham Springs each summer.
To provide visual and performing art classes for adults and children.
We are so pleased to announce the renovations on our building have been completed. This much needed improvement would have not been possible without the support of Sherwin Williams, James Drug Store and special expertise of Pam McAllister. Remember to support these local businesses that contribute to the community.
The Arts Council of Livingston Parish has been closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. We care deeply about the health of our staff, volunteers and art supporters. In particular, the well being of those that fall into a high-risk category or may have underlying conditions. It is also important to note the arts council shares the building with the Disabled American Veterans (DAV).
Based on public health orders the decision has been made to close the gallery and postpone the gallery reception. Please know it is with deep regret we make this call. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 status and when it is deemed responsible to reopen we will reschedule the gallery reception and event notifications will be sent out.
Our current exhibit features The Livingston Parish Artist of the Year, Kathleen Kuhnert. The Arts Council of Livingston Parish also invited students of Livingston, grades 1st – 12th, to display their artwork in the gallery. Please check back for upcoming rescheduled gallery reception dates and times.
