Lexington, KY – The Living Arts and Science Center (LASC) has completed a $1 million matching grant from the W. Paul and Lucille Caudill Little Foundation and has surpassed the halfway point of its $5 million capital campaign.
In honor of the $1 million grant, which required a dollar from other donors for each dollar from the foundation, the LASC will name its planned addition the Lucille Caudill Little Discovery Center. Caudill Little was one of the LASC’s founders in 1968.
With the final matching money coming in, the LASC has raised $2.85 million of its $5 million goal to fund an addition to their North Martin Luther King Blvd. facility as well as a renovation of its existing space.
The addition to the center will include a planetarium, art and science classrooms, a digital art studio, gallery space and more.
The addition is expected to be complete in 2015 with a groundbreaking scheduled for next spring.
