LA Arts reopens their doors to the public – at their new location – with a celebration from 1-4 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 18. The celebration will include a ribbon cutting and toasts at 2 p.m. and will feature musical entertainment by local performers and refreshments. The exhibition, “REUSE • REPAIR • RECONSIDER,” by artist Lesia Sochor will be on display.

After months of planning, renovations and relocating – LA Arts has opened their new headquarters – an impressive and expansive mixed-use space housing a gallery, performance area, kitchenette and office. The organization has an ambitious lineup of programming and partnerships. The event offers a chance to network with community members, share your own ideas, and discover ways to get involved.

Since 1973, LA Arts, the arts agency for the cities of Lewiston and Auburn, has pursued a mission to engage and inspire a vibrant community through arts and culture. The agency works with governments, businesses, schools and local arts and cultural organizations to create opportunities for community members across the generations to experience, learn, and participate in the arts. LA Arts organizes arts programs and initiatives, supports the work of local artists and arts organizations, and highlights the essential role the arts play in shaping an economically vital, socially integrated, and forward-looking future for its community.

L/A Arts is located at 168 Lisbon St., Lewiston. For more information, visit
