Do fairies exist?
We all know fairies exist, but did you know there’s a worldwide interest in creating homes and gardens for them?
Fairy houses are small, whimsical outdoor dwellings for fairies to live in, ranging from simple houses made from natural materials to elaborate mansions made of metal or resin.
Fairy Homes and Gardens: Lexington is coming June 6-12, 2022.
Which door will you take?
Imagine having a beautifully painted door in your house or as a table, desk, or even a door!
This May, the public art exhibit, “Go Out Doors - Lexington,” sponsored by the Lexington Council for the Arts, in partnership with the Town of Lexington and the Massachusetts Cultural Council, reappeared in Lexington.
Go Out Doors seeks to promote our connectedness to nature and enhance our enjoyment of the outdoors through presenting freestanding, outdoor paintings in the context of the surrounding landscapes.
This fall those doors (approx. 30"x 80") are in the Lexington Historical Society auction. The minimum price for the doors designed by the adult painters is $100; the price for the student doors is $50.
The catalog is available Sept 29. The auction is open Friday, October 8 and closes 10/15
Paint a utility box
Before the temperatures go below 50˚ F, the LCOA is kicking off a Utility Box painting project to transform some of the town’s utility boxes into unique works of art. Utility boxes sit on street corners, sidewalks, and parks, holding all the equipment that keeps our town ticking. They hold traffic light controls, cable connections, electric transformers and more.
We invite you to submit up to three original designs by October 1, 2021, to be considered for this year’s jury. Several of the selected boxes are located on town recreation properties and others are scattered throughout our local streets.
