Arts & Culture

As the community's college, Lane is committed to providing experiences to both students and community members to help develop a deeper understanding and appreciation for the arts and culture.

Lane offers more than college classes, career training, and professional development. Lane has been a member of the Eugene/Springfield community since 1964, and since then, we’ve proudly showcased art, dance, theatre, music, and visiting speakers who share their expertise. Whether it’s an interactive art exhibit that allows you to participate in a traditional Chinese tea ceremony or an award-winning original rock opera play, there’s something for everyone to enjoy!

Arts & Cultural Events

Every year, we host a variety of events that bring the community together. Some of our flagship events include the Harvest Dinner & Auction, the Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration, and the Native American Pow-Wow.
