From exhibitions in the Wriston Art Galleries to sculptures and murals in unexpected places to a "pop-up" art gallery run exclusively by Lawrence students, the fine arts come to life on the Lawrence campus and beyond.

Entrepreneurship meets the Fine Arts 


Part of Lawrence’s Innovation and Entrepreneurship Program, The Rabbit Gallery—or Appleton’s own Pop-Up Art Gallery—is run exclusively by Lawrence students. The gallery utilizes empty downtown storefronts for local artists to showcase their work.

Life at Lawrence

The Rabbit Gallery | This is Lawrence

The idea is simple: Lawrence Students temporarily take over an empty store front on College Avenue, they clean and paint the space and then fill it with art made by Lawrence students, faculty and members of the Fox Cities community.
