LA Community Galleries Project*

In April, 2019, LA Arts partnered with the Union of Maine Visual Artists (UMVA) LA chapter to establish on-site art galleries at two local health and human services organizations. Exhibitions in these spaces have a goal to provide therapeutic benefit for participating clients, families, staff and guests at each location. The program also builds community awareness and understanding of the work of participating institutions. 

Each three-month exhibition includes an activity inspired by the artwork such as an artist talk, art making, or public reading. Participating organizations have varying guidelines for who may visit exhibitions and participate in these activities. Please check with LA Arts or a listed organization before planning a visit.

LA Community Galleries have been established at:
