City Hall Art Gallery

Art gallery wall

Lenexa’s City Hall Art Gallery showcases local and regional artists. Shows rotate about every month and feature a wide array of art styles. 

Receptions typically take place on the first Thursday of an exhibit’s debut. These receptions are open to the community and are a great way to learn more about the artists, their inspiration and process.

Some art is available for purchase. Check with the receptionist or the artist’s bio book at the exhibit to learn more. 

The Lenexa Arts Council hosts and organizes the exhibits each year.

We select art based on artistic and cultural significance that encourages public education and appreciation of the arts. We also look for art that demonstrates professional excellence and creativity, taking into consideration general standards of decency and respect for cultural diversity.
