Logan Street Sanctuary
Logan Street Sanctuary, Inc. is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) not-for-profit cultural arts organization, run by a small band of dedicated people ~ perhaps some would call us dreamers, but we work hard to fulfill our LSS mission and to raise enough money each month to rent our current location! We are open during the week at various times ~ being an all-volunteer organization means we do not have paid staff, so we are open whenever our Secretary, Alys, can be there. Logan Street Sanctuary offers regularly scheduled singer-songwriter concerts, art, drama, and literature events, including the annual NICE (Noblesville Interdisciplinary Creativity Expo) and Page & Stage Theatre Co.’s Summer Workshop. We also publish the annual The Polk Street Review anthology, and host The Vagina Monologues (annual fundraiser for Prevail, Inc.). We make little, if any, money from our events. Throughout the year, we host creative workshops for minimal fees, and we offer LSS as a rental space at reasonable rates, but our events themselves are typically free to the public. At all events, we put out a glass bowl for LSS donations to “help keep the lights on”. At our concert events, we ask $15 donations at “the door” ~ $10 goes directly to the performers, and $5 donation goes directly to support LSS.
Our main space upstairs seats up to 65, with a stage for concerts, art & literature presentations, small weddings, and other events. LSS is an excellent listening environment for “listening room” style performances. Primary seating is in newly re-upholstered and padded church pews. Unlike bars and restaurants, we do not (and never will have) TVs hanging on the walls. We serve light refreshments, and we encourage polite listening for the performers’ and the audience’s sake. Downstairs we have a public meeting/workshop room and full kitchen. We also have a private artist studio space available for rent.
Our Art Gallery:
We are very proud to be an art gallery hanging some of the best local art in the area; contact Alys at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in renting gallery wall space in our main area upstairs and the stairwell.
We have a baby grand piano for lessons and recitals, and our space can be rented for other types of presentations, performances, music and/or vocal lessons and recitals, small weddings, receptions, and meetings. Contact Alys at email@example.com for more information.
