The LUX Art Institute in Encinitas

I'm a big fan of art, and an art collector (not high end, mind you) and my wife and I used to own an art gallery when we lived in Cambridge, MA. So I am always on the look-out for new galleries and museums, and enjoy visiting when I have the time.

The LUX Art Institute was founded in 1998 in Encinitas, but they recently opened their new facility there, which is a work of art itself. The concept is unique, too - the artist in residence - where viewers can not only enjoy the works of art that are displayed but also watch and interact with the artist at work. Artists, one at a time, live in an apartment at the institute for several weeks.

I really like the idea of a in-house resident artist. This exposes visitors to art, as well as the process of creating.
