Mission

Since 1996, Lump has expanded the possibilities for artists and curators through the support of ambitious projects in exhibition, performance, research and documentation while broadening the community’s exposure to new artistic practices and dialogue.  In 2016, Lump officially became a 501(c)3 non profit organization.

As an arts organization created to engage and support artists and their audiences, our mission includes a multifaceted approach: To support artists who take risks and help them realize new ambitious projects; to coordinate a strong support system for visual artists; to promote relationships between artists and the community; and to increase access to the visual arts and arts education for the citizens of North Carolina.
