Artists need to get their start somewhere.... Keystone has been just that place for a number of local and regional artists who had a first show here. Some even went on to open galleries.
Now we're real proud to say an entire organization has sprung to life through the Keystone Art & Culture Center. You're no doubt well aware of the Lancaster Creative Reuse which since 2010 has operated as a program under Keystone's fiscal sponsership.
As of May 2, 2014 Lancaster Creative Reuse is taking to its own feet and setting up as a wholly independent organization. Here's a brief note from the founders of LCR....
Once upon a time, in 2009, a group of gals thought it'd be fun to start a creative reuse center. Being a seedling of an idea, they were grateful to find shelter under the nonprofit Keystone Art & Culture Center, through a fiscal sponsorship agreement. This allowed them to focus on the work of building the community resource. Well! The community responded, the resource grew, and now LCR is ready to be planted outside! That's metaphor speak for: As of May 2nd, LCR is its own Non-profit, incorporated in the State of PA! Federal tax-exempt status in process. More details to come...Thank you for being a part of this journey!
Great opening for FINE along with musical master Mr. Nick DiSanto - the one man band extraordinaire.
