The Living Arts & Science Center (LASC) was created as a not-for-profit organization in 1968 to “provide creative and unique opportunities for exploration and education in the arts and sciences.” Over these 46 years, the LASC has not only moved with the times but has become a trusted creative resource and a stimulating force that makes Central Kentucky a better place.

Each year, the LASC presents an extensive and diverse array of programming including:

Over 400 classes and workshops for children 18-months old to adults;Seven to nine art exhibits of original work by local and regional artists; Hands-on Discovery exhibits exploring relationships between art and science; Performances and workshops with local and regional musicians, storytellers and puppet companies; Free community arts programs provided to numerous social service agencies and neighborhood and community centers; Field Trip programs focusing on Kentucky’s core content in the arts and sciences; Discovery Night programs featuring guest artists and scientists sharing their work and collections; and Free arts activities at community events such as Arbor Day at the Arboretum, MayFest, Latino Fest, the High Hope Steeplechase, and at our own Family Fun Day at the LASC.

The Living Arts & Science Center is located just 3 ½ blocks from Main Street in the Kinkead House, a beautiful 1847 home listed on the National Register for Historic Places. We enjoy 1 ½ lively acres in our urban setting that includes a waterfall and stream system with native Kentucky plantings, a butterfly garden and children’s garden, an outdoor classroom and several works of public art created by local artists and community members.
