You may ask yourself WHY should I give to the LASC? Why is the LASC important to our community?

The LASC is one of Lexington’s oldest nonprofits. By being here since 1968, we have seen the power in possibility of students of all ages, from all backgrounds, of every ability… we believe in the power of art and science education for ALL. Don’t you?

Amazing things are possible when we focus on meeting needs within the community. Lifelong learning occurs for preschoolers through adults, whether they are creating gooey messes, loudly beating a handmade drum or quietly observing an aquatic creature. Children are thriving in quality afterschool programming in 6 Title One Schools. Summer Camp and No School Day Classes exemplify experiential discovery through fun activities. Squeals of delight are heard daily through field trips, art lessons, planetarium shows, or culinary exploration.

When you give to us…you give the power of possibility to ignite learning…now and in the future.

The Center’s building is temporarily unavailable for regular visitor activities. However, our galleries, Maker’s Space and exhibits are OPEN based on building safety capacity and activities. We have lots of activities, camps, upcoming events and virtual fun for you to check out!

The Living Arts & Science Center will continue to follow CDC and Kentucky state standards of masking and social distancing guidelines for daycare centers. Because we work with an unvaccinated population under age 12, The Living Arts & Science Center will require all persons ages 2 and over to wear a mask while indoors, unless actively eating or drinking. While outdoors, masks are not required, but social distancing should be maintained. Children under age 2 should never be masked, per CDC guidelines. We will continue these procedures for our fall programming. We will monitor CDC and Kentucky guidelines for schools and daycare centers, and will adjust our policies if future standards change.

All of our staff are 100% vaccinated. They wear masks to provide a good example for unvaccinated students. Persons not able to follow masking guidelines, will be asked to leave. These policies are intended to keep unvaccinated persons safe and healthy. Disposable masks are always available for anyone who does not have one.

As a nonprofit organization, the Living Arts and Science Center relies on generous contributions from individuals, corporations, foundations, and public agencies to support our many educational programs. Gifts are welcomed year-round, and are tax deductible as allowed by law.Through your involvement and support, the Living Arts & Science Center makes our community immeasurably better.
