Welcome! This is the official blog of Final Fridays exhibits & performing arts in Downtown Lawrence. Final Fridays began in August of 2010 through the cooperation of the Lawrence Arts Center, Downtown Lawrence Inc., The Lawrence Cultural Arts Commission and a wealth of artists, gallerists, art collectives and local businesses, all of whom saw the value of the arts in our city and an opportunity to bring them to a wider public through this monthly free arts festival. Lawrence has one of the highest percentages of working artists in the country per capita, and has long stood out in the Kansas landscape as a mecca for creative thought and energy. On the last Friday of every month (all year long!) from 5 until 9 pm, the streets of Downtown Lawrence erupt, storefronts convert into flash spaces, and performances and exhibits spill in and out of galleries and businesses. Activities for kids, exhibitions designed to challenge adults, music, dance and theater for all ages are all within walking distance of each other. On this blog, you will find previews and updates, listings of venues, links to galleries, Lawrence visitor information and a lot of great art photos.
