The Public Art Committee of Lafayette is pleased to present LPIE in the Sky: Spotlight on LPIE Art Instructors, a first-ever exhibition featuring the work of five Lafayette Partners in Education (LPIE) artist-instructors: Susan Fuller, Valyrie Gillum, Tim Hancock, Kristen Jensen-Horne, and Lisa Larsen. This exhibit seeks to honor the contributions of these artists to the cultural enrichment of the community. Lafayette is fortunate to have these talented artists and passionate educators inspiring its students. The LLLC Gallery is open to the public from 7-9 pm on Monday evenings at the Lafayette Library. The show will run from August through September.
There will be a reception honoring LPIE Art Instructors and their Exhibit on September 23, 2019 from 6-7 PM before the city council meeting at the Lafayette Library Community Center. This is a great opportunity for students to witness civic activities!
We welcome our LPIE community to come and show support for our fabulous Art Instructors and their work.
About LPIE LPIE is a community-based education foundation run by parent volunteers, working to enhance and expand the educational opportunities for students in Lafayette’s six public schools – Burton Valley, Happy Valley, Lafayette, and Springhill Elementary Schools, Stanley Middle School, and Acalanes High School. Founded in 1980, LPIE, originally Lafayette Arts & Science Foundation, provided funds and instructors to teach art, music, and science in the classroom. Today, 39 years later, LPIE not only provides nearly $5 million dollars for programs, supplies and services to our schools, but continues the tradition of bringing qualified artists, musicians and scientists to engage our students through hands-on participation in the arts and sciences.
