The Lawrenceville Arts Commission was organized in 2019 and launched in 2020 to promote the expansion, education, and enhancement of public art in the City of Lawrenceville. The LAC’s mission is to emphasize the role of the arts in the cultural enrichment and aesthetic quality of the City’s physical environment, the mental wellbeing of the City’s residents, and the community heritage, character, and identity of the City as a livable, sustainable, vibrant hub for the arts and artists.

Community Mural Project
The Lawrenceville Arts Commission announced a Community Mural Call for Art in late 2022. This open call urged artists to submit designs for a community mural planned along Buford Drive in Downtown Lawrenceville. The selected mural wall is approximately 250 feet long and has a total of 1867 square feet. A portion of the mural will be designed for community participation in the painting process organized by the Arts Commission.
The City of Lawrenceville is thrilled to announce the successful completion of the "Lawrenceville Blooms" community mural in Downtown Lawrenceville. This artistic endeavor, brought to life by the Arts Commission and local artist Teresa Abboud, serves as a symbol of unity and diversity in the heart of the city. The mural wall is approximately 250 feet long and has a total of 1867 square feet. Tune in to our exclusive interview with Teresa Abboud and Aura-Leigh Sanders for a behind-the-scenes look at "Lawrenceville Blooms."
