Arts and creativity are vital to Michigan – to the economy, our communities and neighborhoods, and our schools. Become an arts advocate with the Lexington Arts Council.

We are continually growing our outreach and venues for the arts. Over the past 30 years, the Lexington Arts Council has grown from a backyard music concert to providing the Blue Water area with world renowned musicians during the Lexington Bach Festival, nine or more concerts per year through our Music in the Park summer concert series, scholarship opportunities for local high school students, and numerous special events that promote the creative arts throughout our area.
