THE LILLIAN SMITH CENTER

...to write, dance, paint, compose or whatever art you do. The Lillian E. Smith Center for Creative Arts is wonderful. Though it's situated on Old Screamer Mountain, no one screams, except the occasional owl. The days and nights are quiet and peaceful, the cabins are lovely, the mountain is beautiful, and the place is suffused with the aura and example of Lillian Smith. I came away inspired and invigorated."

Ned Stuckey-French, writer and first resident of the Center

I CAN THINK OF NO
A LIFE'S PURPOSE - THE

The residency program at the Lillian E. Smith Center is just as Ned described it - a perfect place to find the peace and quiet of natural surroundings, positive spiritual energy and the centeredness so important to creative expression. Lillian Smith was certain of the value of these elements in an individual's creative growth and ability to understand his or her place in the world - along with the nature of social responsibility.

In the years prior to Lillian's college study she was a camp counselor. After she returned to Laurel Falls Camp to assume the directorship she began to understand how important the development of community was to social responsibility. As her own awareness grew and her conviction of purpose strengthened her path became clear.

The Lillian E. Smith Foundation in recognizing the importance of providing such experiences in an increasingly complex world, decided to establish the Lillian E. Smith Center as it's first major project.

of The Lillian E. Smith Center for Creative Arts is to offer a place where gifted creative artists and scholars in various disciplines may find the conditions of quiet solitude and privacy in which to pursue their work.
