It also houses premium art venues, hosts fun family events and provides educational opportunities for persons of all ages and levels of ability. The Paul Nigra Center was named for the former executive director of Lexington. Paul worked tirelessly to support people with disabilities and believed that every person could achieve success and fulfillment. Paul founded Lexington’s world-famous rock band, Flame, a group of musicians who refused to let their disabilities be a barrier to success. The Paul Nigra Center is a “home base” for Flame, continuing Paul’s legacy of cultivating and celebrating the artistic endeavors of people of all ages and abilities.
