Presenter Description:

Lincoln City Cultural Center was first known as The Lincoln City Arts Forum when established on August 10, 1992. It was renamed the "4C's" (Coastal Communities Cultural Center), and received its Articles of Incorporation on December 20, 1996. The organization obtained Non-Profit altStatus as IRS 501(c)3  on October 14, 1997.

Six months later, in April of 1998, its first By-Laws were established and later revised in 2003. In September 2006, the 4C's leased DeLake School from the city of Lincoln City; and adopted its new business name of Lincoln City Cultural Center in February 2007.

Since 1929, historic DeLake School has been a center for education for the children of Lincoln City. LCCC continues this tradition for ALL ages, offering classes in art, dance, music, literature, and theater.  The Lincoln City Cultural Center also sponsors play writing contests, fund raisers, and activities to encourage artists of all ages. 

The Mission  of the Lincoln City Cultural Center is to enrich our community through art and cultural events in the historic Delake School. Our vision is to have the Lincoln City Cultural Center support community economic development by promoting a successful center for the visual and performance arts. 

Along Oregon's central coast, Lincoln City Cultural Center invites all ages through its doors, with offerings of creative classes, activities, exhibits and events that are designed to enrich the life of our Lincoln City community and to celebrate the artist in each of us.

Come join us as we present a center for learning, with gallery exhibitions, dance and musical performances, poetry readings, film festivals, and other entertainment for all members of the family. Members support the Cultural Center by participation in art events and classes, payment of membership dues and volunteering their time and resources.


Upcoming Events in Lincoln City Cultural Center

  • LCCC Presents: Jet Black Trio

    July 1st, 2018 to July 1st, 2018

    Description:It all started 25 years ago in the back of a thrift store in Prague. Jetty Swart stumbled upon a fancy accordion. She smuggled it back home, stared at it for a couple of weeks before she realized that now she had to learn how to play it, write songs. And sing them. Since then, Jetty (aka Jet Black Pearl) has become the World Wild Accordion Diva, playing from the streets of New York to theaters and festivals in France (with her band Yeti), until she met The Amazing Bubble Man and moved with him to Portland. She now sings in English, but she’s kept her strange accent and her faithful fancy accordion. She sings, raps and beat boxes about slugs in love, criminal gurus and hallucinating butterflies.

  • LCCC Presents: Ben Cosgrove

    July 5th, 2018 to July 5th, 2018

    Description:Ben Cosgrove is a traveling composer-performer whose instrumental music is inspired by landscape, place, and ecology. Ben's 2017 album "Salt," which compares feelings of ungroundedness and confusion to landscapes of flux and ambiguity in northern New England, was described by Seven Days as a "majestic entry into the composer's catalog... replete with near-imperceptible embellishments and forward-thinking concepts." Junction Magazine called the album "a poetry of tones and turns and motion and play that transcends the gross signification of everyday language," and Red Line Roots has deemed it one of the best releases of the year to date. In 2017-18, Ben served as the artist-in-residence with the New England Trail -- a National Scenic Trail connecting New Hampshire to Long Island Sound. He has also held residencies and fellowships at Acadia National Park, Isle Royale National Park, the Schmidt Ocean Institute, and the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology, and he spent a year as the artist in residence at White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire and Maine.
