Why I Support the Lincoln City Cultural Center

"As a teacher and member of New Moon Yoga, I love having our studio at the LCCC. It is a wonderful fit! The Chessman Gallery is a beautiful space and the curated shows are terrific. And, we think it is important that the City knows that individual citizens really care about the LCCC and want to ensure its future success."
— Rocky

"From a small space on the first floor of city hall, to a mothballed school, to the existing facility known as the Cultural Center, home to the arts, both visual and performing .... its been a long journey but well worth the effort. It is an exciting place to work, play and be entertained. It is one of the best assets of Lincoln City, and one of the best investments in town."
— Mary Bea

“It is so impressive that local leaders had such extraordinary vision for turning an old brick landmark into the Cultural Center that it is today. ... It is a great place to make new friends and spend time together as a community. We want to help support this venue so its success continues!” 
— Joan & Darrell Prins

Community-based design

The Lincoln City Cultural Plaza project will transform the outdoor space around the historic Delake School building, turning the grounds into a pedestrian-friendly plaza filled with dedicated installments of public art, gathering spaces with seating and brick patios and spaces for outdoor arts education, connected by a meandering pathway. Additionally, the redesigned traffic flow will include new parking areas with islands, adequate lighting for evening use, and other upgrades required by city code.

The LCCC Board of Directors has been working on the Plaza design since early 2018, in cooperation with the landscape architect firm Shapiro Didway and Newport-based Civil West Engineering Services. The board has used a community-based process to gather feedback and design comments from our stakeholders, members, general public, and major partners. We are excited that the design will not only be useful, but an artistic and beautiful enhancement to Lincoln City, created in collaboration with the community.
