In August of 2012, visionaries, architects, designers, and contractors came together to build something unique not just for Lynden, but all of Whatcom County. What was once the City Hall and Fire Hall on Lynden’s Front Street, now stands The Jansen Art Center. With 6 creative art studios, a 110 seat performance hall, 2 floors of exhibit space, a cafe, and gallery shop, the J is a bright lovely place for all to enjoy.
Using quarterly programs, new classes and exhibits are updated every three months, bringing new sights and opportunities. The J strives to be a place for artists to create, teach, share, and engage the community in the arts. Whether it’s ceramics, dance, fine art & painting, jewelry, music, textiles, exhibits, or performances, there is something for everyone here.
