What We Do

The South of Downtown Art Hub

The South of Downtown Art Hub was created to provide free and affordable resources for creative expression, community events, and economic development. We believe community enrichment begins with each individual.


Second Friday Art Walk

Second Friday Art Walk is a free monthly art tour in collaboration with Southeast Community College, JazzTime Smooth Radio, and Pepe's Bistro. Every month you can listen to live music, view the work of local artists, and grab some food from Pepe's Bistro located at 1211 S 11th St. During Second Friday Art Walk participants can listen to live music at the South of Downtown Art Hub, located at 1247 S 11th St, starting at 7 pm and from 6 - 8 pm at Pepe's Bistro. Their is new artwork up every month at Pepe's Kitchen and the Art Hub. If you are a community member interested in sharing your artwork or musical talent please email our community organizer Kat Wiese at kat@lincolnsouthdowntown.org.

Girls Time Art Club is a FREE group for middle school and high school girls in the South of Downtown area to explore their creativity, identity and confidence through collaboration and fine art.
