Strategic Planning

Help Shape the Future of the Lyme Art Association

First of all, we hope you are doing as well as possible in these difficult times. Our blue doors are open and visiting the gallery is, as always, an enjoyable low-contact activity.

Our commitment to supporting artists and inspiring a love of art is as strong as it was when the Lyme Art Association was founded more than a hundred years ago.

We are proud of the Association’s history and want to ensure its continued success. Careful planning is the most important thing we can do to right now. Despite the uncertainty in the world – in part because of it – we are working to develop a thoughtful and actionable strategic plan to keep the Lyme Art Association vibrant and sustainable. 

The first step in our planning process is collecting feedback on the experience of our members, artists, volunteers, donors, visitors, and friends. We are asking our Elected Artists to take one survey, and all of our other friends to take a separate survey. 

Associate Artists, Members, Friends, Visitors: Will you provide feedback on your experience with the Lyme Art Association by taking the community survey? The survey should take 4 minutes to complete. All responses are anonymous. Although we are certainly taking the pandemic into account during planning, we are looking for your perspective on our pre-covid operations.

Elected Artists: We have sent you your survey by email. Please contact us if you have not received it. Please do NOT take the community survey.

We are grateful for your time and responses, which are so important for planning our future. We hope to see you soon, and we are looking forward to updating you on the planning process in the coming months.
