LHUCA Began Construction on Plaza Extension [Audio]

LHUCA, Facebook

Friday on Lubbock’s First News, Tonja Hagy of the Loise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts and Jacob Kirkland of Teinert Commercial Building Services described plans for the construction of the LHUCA’s new plaza extension to their campus.

The LHUCA plaza is to be the center of the campus and a new face for one dimension of the Lubbock art district.¬†Hagy predicted, “It’s going to kind of become the central park of the arts district… This is going to act as a kind of a really cool urban oasis.”

Kirkland noted that planning and preparation have been taking place over the past few years for this new outdoor venue. Since all groundwork has been laid, phase two has begun. This phase includes the demolition of the alley that will be replaced by brick pavement and sidewalks, trees, and a cafe area. Kirkland described LHUCA’s efforts to create an environmentally friendly landscape for water conservation and low maintenance. The next phase of the project will work at the south end, and the fourth phase will see the installation of pavilion and an outdoor stage.

An engraved brick can be purchased in support of the plaza for $100. Updates on the project will be available at, as well as on the LHUCA Facebook.
