The City of Lakewood is excited to once again host INSPIRE Arts Lakewood from May 25 through June 30, 2024! Spread across the city at more than 20 locations - Lakewood galleries, cultural centers, shops and more - participating venues will be offering free and low-cost arts and culture experiences to the community, throughout the month.
Inspire will kick off with exhibitions at the Lakewood Cultural Center like Fiber Feast : A Fiber Arts Exhibition, featuring a collection of artists working across a wide array of woven, tufted, threaded, and wound materials. Throughout June, the gallery will host an exhibition panel discussion, a community tufting workshop, drop-in art opportunities in the Corner Gallery, and a public exhibition reception on June 14 from 6-8pm. The Lakewood Cultural Center youth camps will host performances and arts exhibitions every Friday of the month of June at 11:30am and 3:30pm, and Washington Heights Arts Center and Heritage Lakewood Belmar Park will host free community arts engagement activities, Like Rockin’ Block, throughout Inspire Arts Lakewood month.
