​​​​Inspiring, Encouraging, and Promoting the Arts in Lodi, CA

First Friday Art Hop at Hutchins Street Square

 On the first Friday of every month, we invite different local artists to display, discuss and often sell their work in Thomas Theater. Live musical performances and light refreshments  ̶̶   including excellent local wines  ̶̶  enhance the evening. First Friday Art Hop at Hutchins Street Square is the flagship of the many venues that make up the Lodi Art Hop. 

Spin Art Bicycle

A favorite at many events, the spin art bicycle made its 2015 debut at the AMGEN Bicycle Tour Stage Two celebration on the front lawn at Hutchins Street Square.  Children and the young at heart can create painted starbursts as the bike's pedals spin your paint drops on a turntable. 


Lodi Arts Foundation Pub
Lodi Arts Foundation members, assisted by Lodi Arts Commission members, volunteer to operate concessions, including bartending, at several local events at Hutchins Street Square throughout the year.   All proceeds benefit Lodi Arts Commission programs

Twenty-Four-Hour Playwrights

An evening of original plays was held for the first time on October 24, 2015.  Within 24 hours, six local authors each wrote a short play that was cast, rehearsed, and performed one time only in Thomas Theater.  All proceeds were shared between the Lodi Arts Foundation and Changing Faces Theater Company.
