The Art & Culture Commission of Lemont was launched in 2004 as a citizen's initiative to enliven and promote the cultural life in the community of Lemont. This seven member board consists of Commissioners appointed to two-year terms by the Village Board and a designated Village Board Liaison. Commissioners come with diverse backgrounds and interests encompassing all artistic disciplines. All community members interested in the growth of the arts in Lemont are encouraged to attend our monthly open meetings (2nd Tuesdays of the month, 7 pm) and to become involved as volunteers or members of various committees. The mission of the Commission is:
To enrich the lives of Lemont residents and visitors by cultivating and
promoting the appreciation of our heritage through public arts projects.
The information and photographs that appear on this page provide a sampling of some of the Commission's previous projects as well as a taste of things to come. Please enjoy! Your ideas and input are welcomed. Please feel free to contact any of the Commissioners.
