Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts

Want to go to a cool (both in the temperature sense as well as the awesome environment sense) place where you can ponder a variety of art from brillant minds and hands spreading across the state, nation and world? Or maybe you’re more into the social aspect… Hanging out with friends, meeting new people, walking and chatting while simply browsing the art.

The Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts (LHUCA) is the resounding, bright, happy answer to both of these situations. And yes, if you fit into either art enthusiast or social browser… LHUCA is welcoming to all. The non-profit organization has been in Lubbock since 1997, connecting and supporting aspiring and practicing artists. The campus has grown into a four block, nine building masterpiece. The Charles Adams Studio Project (CASP) works together with LHUCA to impact the cultural scene of our community.
