Lincoln City Cultural Center

The Lincoln City Cultural Center is 17,000 square feet of creativity and community, located just a block from the beach on the captivating Oregon Coast. The Center, housed in the historical 1929 Delake School building, has been extensively renovated inside to create a concert hall (a favorite stop for touring jazz and Americana bands), the Chessman Gallery, the Lincoln City Visitor Center and artisan gift shop, as well as art and yoga studios. Along with producing their own concerts, festivals, and art exhibits, the Center is also an affordable venue for other nonprofit organizations. Last year, the Center welcomed 33,000 people to 380 events, both large and small.

The Night with the Ukulele All-Stars concert in September embodies the LCCC mission. Internationally known instructors attending a three-day retreat at nearby Camp Westwind perform a benefit concert at the LCCC. Concert proceeds go to the Westwind Stewardship Group, which preserves and protects the 529-acre Westwind camp and farm within the surrounding land in the Cascade Head Scenic Research Area. Outdoor education, conservation, and ukuleles—the nexus of culture that LCCC makes possible.

This year, Executive Director Niki Price is especially excited for the fourth presentation of Sound of Nature, Sound
of Art. Led by Jonathan Dubay of the Three Centuries Ensemble, the Center merges chamber music compositions inspired by nature with visual artists who respond to the music in real time during the performance. They also offer “audience art” projects, which allow listeners the distinctive experience of hearing music and translating it into art simultaneously.
