The Lyndon House

Arts Foundation

The Lyndon House Arts Foundation is an independent nonprofit that provides funding and resources to support the innovation, reach, and diversity of the Lyndon House Arts Center.


Fully Funded

These programs would not exist if it were not for the funding through the Foundation. The Annual Juried show is one of the most popular annual shows and continues to grow in the number of artists submitting work each year. The juror is flown in from one of the leading art museums in the U.S.

  • Annual Juried Exhibition
  • Original Lickskillet Artists Market
  • Teen Cartoon Club

Partially Funded

For these programs we supplement the Center’s budget to make the program more extensive, and sometimes even possible. The support could be as simple as helping to pay for an instructor/assistant, or as extensive as buying a kiln or computer with animation software.

  • Ware Lyndon Historic House Projects
  • Upstream I & II Exhibits
  • Full House Exhibit
  • Harvest Festival
  • Textile Exhibit
  • Holiday Open House and Deck the Halls
  • Wearable Art Project

Community Makers Poppy Project.
The Poppy Project is in honor and celebration of the 100-year anniversary of Armistice Day and the end of hostilities during World War I. The Poppy Lady, Moina Michael, who was born in Good Hope GA, studied at the Lucy Cobb and Normal Schools, and taught at UGA in Athens, began the world trend of using a red poppy to honor the veterans who fought for peace worldwide. Her efforts in support of the veteran population are well known and acknowledged across the state. Come make red poppies to be added to a garland in the gallery or worn on your lapel.

Food to be eaten, beers to drink…
All day long, local brewers will be serving beer created in Athens.  Brewers include Creature Comforts, Akademia, and Southern Brewery, so get your wristband!  18 years and older!  Food trucks, including Damunchiezz, Manila Express, and King of Pops will be parked at the Arts Center too!

For more information, please call 706 613 3623, go to the Facebook event, or view the news releasess below.
