*note from Bill Thelen below:

Bill Thelen here. I just wanted to let y’all know I’ve signed on to direct Lump for the year 2024 in hopes to fully realize Lump as a volunteer-based, artist-run space into the future. Lump has pretty much been this all along since our past directors (Kelly, April and George) were never paid a living wage. Right now it costs around $2,000 a month to keep Lump open. We’ve written multiple grants, but we are also looking for community support. On December 1st, we will have a fundraising benefit. Artists and local businesses have generously donated work, objects and goods to help keep us running. Since a large part of our audience is fellow artists we decided to keep everything very affordable for the benefit. Everything is priced at $25, $50 and $100 to ensure artists were also given the option to buy (times are tough, especially for artists) and to give a percentage to Lump and keep some for themselves. It’s going to be a great night! Everything is cash and carry, so help us clear the walls! We will be open from 6-10pm with performances starting at 8. We look forward to seeing you and thank you all for supporting us over the past 27 years!!”

Online donations can be made via the DONATE button at the bottom of this page.

THANK YOU to all of our artists and volunteers that have kept LUMP programming alive since 1996!
