Lubeznik Center cancels 2020 art festival

The Lubeznik Center for the Arts (LCA) has canceled the  2020 Lubeznik Arts Festival.

This year would have marked the festival’s 39th year. The festival hosts close to 100 artists and artisans over a two-day event that typically attracts nearly 3,000 visitors.

Janet Bloch, LCA executive director, said the event was cancelled due to concern over public health during the COVID-19 pandemic. “The health of our staff and patrons is my number one responsibility. After much deliberation, the LCA team feels this is the most responsible position. We want to get back to business as soon as we can and as safely as possible. Hopefully, next year we will attract twice the number of visitors.”

LCA re-opened to the public July 3 for the exhibition “Well-Behaved Women: Celebrating 100 Years of Women’s Suffrage.”

In order to keep guests safe, LCA is limiting attendance to 20 visitors at a time and requires everyone to wear masks. Tours can be arranged for groups of 12 or more. The art center will be closed on Tuesdays this summer. The hours are otherwise unchanged:10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays; 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.
