Lawrence Cultural Arts Commission proposing cultural district
It’s no secret that the heart of Lawrence is ripe with culture. A
group of stakeholders led by the Lawrence Arts Center wants the area to
have an official definition that reflects it. The Lawrence Cultural Arts Commission on Sunday heard the group’s
pitch, liked it and will propose designating as a “cultural district”
the area roughly bounded by the Kansas River, 15th Street, Vermont
Street and the north end of the Burroughs Creek Trail.
