Smart Art at Lux Art Institute
Housed in a LEED-certified property and housing artists in studio, the Lux Art Institute is much more than a traditional museum.
Lux Art Institute is not a museum … at least not in the traditional sense. The architecturally stunning property, which is LEED-certified and a winner of the prestigious Grand Orchid design award, is reason enough to visit. Inside, guests can view not only completed art masterpieces, but also watch the artistic process firsthand. Lux’s acclaimed artist residency program features a changing lineup of internationally recognized artists who work in a live studio environment for approximately one month, with their newly completed works on exhibit for another month following their residency. Texas artist Melissa Miller, whose vivid tableaus depict the complex relationship between humans and animals, will be in studio through June 29 and her work will be displayed through July 27. 1550 S. El Camino Real, Encinitas. 760.436.6611. luxartinstitute.org
