Summer Updates

IMG_1332Just a quick update because there seems to be so much happening (at a time when things should be on vacation!).

As ever – there are PLENTY of opportunities to get involved, and all you need to do is send an email to artscouncil@lexingtonma.gov to find out more about what is going on, or to get involved!

 

  • The gallery at the Community Center is soon to go online – this includes a hallway for 2D, and display cases for 3D.  more information can be found on the cary library site via Art@Cary for anyone who wants to display, or see who is exhibiting
  • Folks are beginning to think about the next Center ArtWalk for November – and hoping to get more retailers to display things in windows, and to consider an “affordable art” theme (e.g., perhaps smaller sizes?)
  • ArtsOffroad organizers are already thinking about next year (believe it or not),  with a focus on the bike path and inviting our neighbors from Bedford and Arlington and Cambridge to join in the fun
  • The lark of having a “Wearable Art” gala (and fundraiser) has actually taken hold with some interested folks who are looking at having this event in September of 2017
  • No one has actually bumped heads about what arts might find their way into the 2017 Patriots’ Day Parade- perhaps some early entries for ArtsOffroad & Wearable Art?  Wouldn’t it be great if we could bring local dancers and musicians in too??
  • And lastly, the Council for the Arts will be spearheading discussions about a Strategic Plan for the Arts & Culture this coming autumn.  please send your thoughts about what you think Lexington’s arts & culture mean – what we should maintain and what we should build.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED (some ideas for summer activities & musings):
  • Create some art for the ArtWalk 2016
  • Gather up some music for the reception night of ArtWalk 2016
  • Google “art bike” and craft a plan for what you would like to do for ArtsOffroad in May 2017
  • Log on to facebook.com/artslexington to see what previous ArtsOffroad’s were like, and muse how you might bring your music there in May 2017
  • Create some Wearable Art for the parade in April 2017, and for the gala in September!
  • Talk to your friends about what the arts & culture scene should look like in a few years time, and get back to the arts council with your thoughts
