socially engaged projects


Here at Modern Art, we use our studio to make work that surprises, confuses, explains, confronts, relaxes, and amuses.

open studios

Once a month we host open studios. We invite one and all to come in and bring something you are working on. Any media. No judgement. BYOB and BYOS (upplies).
Find the date for our next one here.

Workshops & school visits


 We love working with kids and our workshops can be catered to any age group. We can also meet with group leaders to create custom experience. 
This is a pdf that explains more.


We also paint every chance we get.
This is what Libby’s paintings look like.  

Modern Art is an art and design studio based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Through slightly disarming, curious, and unconventional surprises, we use creativity and design thinking to provide an entry point into change making. We investigate how this can strengthen and propel a community’s sense of social awareness and responsibility.
