Exhibits July 10 - August 20  In an attempt to process the multilayered issues facing our society and culture, this month kicks off with a special exhibition in which artists interpret and respond to this extended moment in time.
Gallery and gift shop hours, starting July 10:
Monday, Wednesday, Friday • 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Saturdays • 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
or by appointment by contacting  exhibitions@artinlee.org
Tuesdays, July 28 and August 11 • These behind-the-scenes looks offer unique insight into each artists’ inspiration, process and the context behind the work. Be part of the conversation, express your thoughts and ideas or simply sit back and enjoy the discussion of what art means to us as individuals and as a society.
Wednesdays • Support local businesses and let someone else do the cooking! It’s all made with love – whether you order a savory entrée to take home or a sweet and delicious dessert. Make us your Wednesday destination for dinner as food trucks rotate weekly.
Thursday, July 23  • Belly up to the brush bar and paint along virtually with creative genius David Acevedo! For one night only, enjoy an evening of creating and clinking while wearing your comfy pants! David will take you through the steps to create your one of a kind rooster masterpiece to fill that empty wall space you’ve been staring at.
Pour a drink, grab a snack and settle in for an exciting night of sipping and swirling with your friends from the Alliance!
