The Lubeznik Center for the Arts will host its Back-to-School Celebration on Sept. 6.

MICHIGAN CITY — The next edition of LCA’s First Fridays program has been designed specifically with families in mind.

On Friday, Sept. 6, from 5 to 8 p.m., Lubeznik Center for the Arts (LCA) will host its first ever Back-to-School Celebration. 

“We really wanted to celebrate the beginning of the school year with students and families and thought a First Friday party was a perfect fit, “ said Hannah Hammond-Hagman, LCA’s education director. “Our inaugural Back-to-School Celebration provides a free creative evening for kids and families of our community headed back to the important work of studying and growing this school year, and everyone is invited!”

LCA said the evening’s lineup will include plenty of activities for families to enjoy. Kids and their grown-ups can join in the dance party with music provided by DJ Alfonta Lee of Lee’s Beats. Need a break from the action? Check out LCA’s colorful summer exhibition, The Chicago Imagists: Before and After, which runs through Oct. 19.

In the NIPSCO Art Education Studios, artists of all ages will find opportunities to express their creativity with a variety of artmaking activities throughout the evening, including collaborative hoola hoop weaving and making free form sculptures, LCA said.

Complimentary light refreshments will be available, with a number of kid-friendly selections on the menu. LCA’s cash bar features both alcoholic and non-alcoholic selections.

LCA's mission is to ensure everyone in the community receives equal access to high-quality cultural experiences.
