The Art of 5k

Join us for the first annual Art of 5K! This race will take place through art-filled downtown and the surrounding neighborhoods of Lafayette, LA. Dress up as your favorite artist (performing/visual) or artwork to help bring the arts to a 5k!


The Art of 0k

Have you ever wished there was a race for people who hate running? This is the perfect one! Register for The Art of 0k, which has absolutely NO RUNNING. Starting just 30 minutes after our Art of 5k, this 0k is a fun party in Downtown Lafayette with beer, music, and cheering on the 5k race participants. 

 

Exhibitions 

 

In the Company of San Malo

 

In the Company of San Malo is an exhibition of finely detailed lithophanes constructed of cast acrylic. The works are the result of an invitation to collaborate in a project called Le Ker Creolebirthed originally in 2013 by artists Bruce “Sunpie” Barnes and Rachel Breulin.

 

 

Karen deClouet: Various Shapes and Sizes

 

"This body of work reflects pieces that combine my painting process with segmented landscapes I’ve painted from photographs. I build up a ground with broad applications of color, slice up the space with geometric shapes and interweave other spaces, sourced from photographs, into the composition. Through this process I am finding new ways to present a space for the viewer’s eyes to wander.

 

 

And the Stars Aligned

 

An unpolluted night sky that allows the enjoyment and contemplation of the firmament should be considered and inalienable right of humankind equivalent to all other environmental, social and cultural rights
