Blank (right) at the plaque dedication.

Located at the lakefront in Michigan City, the new LCA
is home to classrooms,galleries and an outdoor
art collection.

1975 John G. Blank purchases Michigan City’s vacated public library building, providing a new home for Michigan City’s Community Center for the Arts.

1978 The John G. Blank Art Center officially opens at 312 East 8th St..

2002 Jack and Shirley Lubeznik donate their one-time office building at 101 W. Second St. to be used as the new art center.

2003 The center moves to its current location and is renamed the Lubeznik Center for the Arts.

2004 Phase One of the Master Plan, consisting of the half round gallery, classroom and studio space, Gallery Shop and an enlarged lobby with reception area are completed, with future phases to be completed as funds become available.

For a quarter century, Michigan City’s community art center was known as the John G. Blank Center for the Arts. The center was located at 312 East 8th St. in a neoclassical Indiana limestone structure built in 1896 as the public library. After many decades the city built a new and larger library and the old structure was vacated. A benefactor came forward to purchase the old library building, donating it to the community art center. The center was renamed to honor the donor, John G. Blank, who also served for several years as President of its board of Directors. Although John Blank died in 1975, other members of the Blank family have remained actively involved at the Center for the Arts.

In 2002, Mrs. Shirley Lubeznik, a long-time supporter of the Art Center, donated a new building at 101 W. Second Street. The renamed Jack and Shirley Lubeznik Center for the Arts expanded and improved facilities as part of a master plan. The resulting classrooms, galleries, reception area andGallery Shop maximize the building’s ability to serve the community and make Michigan City’s lakefront art center an important art resource in the region.
