Place 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.

  • “60 Works in 60 Days” by Katia Kyte and Joanne Daschel

    August 10th, 2018 to September 10th, 2018

    Katia Kyte and Joanne Daschel, two Lincoln City artists, committed to create a small piece every day for 60 days. Katia works in oils and Joanne creates glass and stone mosaic. The idea is that with this daily practice the artist learns more in thirty 1-hour paintings than in one 30-hour painting. Creating daily allows the artist to “let go” of perfection and explore technique, materials and process. This show is a window into the unobstructed creative process. Opening reception: Friday Aug. 11 5 - 7 pm
