Our Rich History and Facility Milestones
1965 - 1967
September 8: The Lansing Community Art Gallery became Lansing's first community art gallery. The Gallery's first location included eight rooms of the former Lansing Business University at 124 W. Ionia Street.
1967 - 1975
By 1967, members, participating artists and patrons increased dramatically, prompting a move to 118 1/2 E. Michigan, above Jim's Tiffany Restaurant, with the generous help from owner Angie Vlahakis.
1975 - 2004
In 1975, with support from the community, Lansing Art Gallery moved into the Center, located at 425 South Grand Avenue. The staff grew to three employees and the Gallery supported a growing group of volunteers and enthusiastic patrons.
2004 - 2009
The Gallery moved to the heart of downtown in 2004 at 113 S. Washington Ave. Housed in the former "Liberman's" building from fall 2004 through 2009, the gallery's attendance and artist participation grew significantly.
2009 - 2021
A larger location at 119 N. Washington Square boasted an open floor plan and larger exhibition space, in addition to a dedicated education center for arts instruction and student gallery.
2022 Knapp's Building
In 2022 our journey continues at 300 S. Washington, Suite 100, inside the historic Knapps building. This new location will offer aground level space with plenty of natural light and accessible parking. Stay tuned for info about reopening!
