Welcome to the Old Jail Art Center!

The Old Lawrence County Jail, home of the Old Jail Art Center

We opened our doors in January 2008 in the former Lawrence County Jail, a historic landmark in Bedford, Indiana.  Renovations to expand our usable space are ongoing; at the present we can boast of two studios/classrooms which also serve as gallery space, and the striking two-story jail stairwell.

Changes in 2012

We are back at work on our building and have temporarily discontinued all art classes. Please check back from time to time for updates. 

Congratulations, Tara!

Tara Jones, until recently our resident photographer, has taken over as president of the Lawrence County Art Association for 2012. Congratulations and best wishes to Tara as she embarks on this new path.  Tara's business is expanding and has moved to the Feldman Professional Building at 905 15th Street on the north side of the Bedford courthouse square.
