The Grassroots Art Center in Lucas, Kansas promotes self taught artists from around the state of Kansas, with an emphasis on the talented folk artists who did most of their work in Lucas. The Art Center occupies three late 18th Century buildings downtown Lucas.
The unusual art fills three galleries at the Grassroots Art Center, and the first floor of the nearby Deeble House. An ongoing project is developing a courtyard behind the buildings into an outdoor gallery.
In October of 2008, Lucas was presented the 2008 Governor's Award for Tourism. The award was presented as part of the annual conference of the members of Travel Industry Association of Kansas.
