The Lighthouse ArtCenter is proud to be entering into an exciting period of growth as we celebrate our 55th anniversary. We are bursting at the seams and are now faced with a great opportunity to secure the future of the arts and art education in our community. The Lighthouse ArtCenter Gallery and School of Art consists of a two-building campus. The School of Art includes 4,300 square feet of classroom space located at 395 Seabrook Road. The Gallery features 8,000 square feet of exhibition and classroom space located at 373 Tequesta Drive. For the past 21 years, Lighthouse ArtCenter has leased the School of Art building from the current owner who has put the building up for sale. Exercising our first rights of refusal, the owner has accepted our offer to purchase the School with a closing date of March 28, 2019.
Phase I of our two phase capital campaign focuses on purchasing the School of Art and paying off the remaining mortgage on the Gallery. Purchasing the School of Art building will allow us to stay in the community and make the necessary renovations to meet the needs of our rapidly growing student population. To date, we have raised $400,000 of the $1,025,000 needed toward our Phase I goal. We need to raise the remaining $700,000 by March 28, 2019.
Pledges and gifts must be signed by March 28, 2019, and can span 5 years. Learn about other ways to give in the enclosed materials.
Phase II will double the Gallery space to include more classrooms and programs, as well as upgrade the exhibition areas. Phase II will commence as soon as the successful purchase of the School of Art is complete. We will need $5,000,000 to accomplish Phase II.
