Welcome to the Artist's Umbrella

Lansing's Premiere Variety Show

Providing art, love, and inclusivity for the city of Lansing.

Our Mission

The Artist’s Umbrella (AU) provides a welcoming, diverse, and safe environment for all artists under the umbrella. We want all artists, local and beyond, to have the chance to shine, be seen, and feel loved. We offer our audience a curated art experience, bringing people together while spreading love and creativity.


Our shows have been described as a "positive outpouring of love," and we work to spread that love out into the community. You can find us volunteering to make Lansing a more beautiful and artistic place.


We work hard to deliver a monthly show that provides art, entertainment, and creativity to Lansing.


We're committed to the Lansing art scene and building Lansing up in any way possible.
