Lux Art Institute information
A few miles east of central Encinitas, this new institute lets spectators be present at the creation of art. A changing lineup of artists in residence take turns crafting major pieces, from concept to construction, while spectators watch in the ‘green’ studio building. Creative types will want to make a beeline. From Encinitas, take Encinitas Blvd east and turn right onto S El Camino Real, for about 1.3 miles.
