ArtWalk Community Art: Painted Posts

The ArtWalk Committee invited members of our community, artists and student creatives to participate in yet another community project to celebrate art in our town.   Participants were encouraged to pick up the provided 4 x 4’ wooden poles and create a piece of public art.

The bright, colored poles will be grouped together for an installation at the Visitors Center and other prominent places in Town.

We invite the Lexington community to visit the installations and take photos and post to social media #LexingtonArtWalk.”

It is May 2, 1775 and Rachel Revere has only heard from her beloved husband Paul once since his legendary midnight ride on the 18th of April. Still isolated from one another due to the Siege of Boston, Rachel desperately tries to create a plan to safely take her children: six step-children from Paul’s first marriage and a newborn baby of their own, from the reach of the British Regular Army in Boston. In this program, you will help Rachel, as she carefully considers the dangers and demands of each plan. Find out if Rachel is successful in her perilous mission to unite her family, amidst the wake of an American Revolution.

Presented by Judith Kalaora of History At Play™, LLC, this special presentation, originally commissioned for the Paul Revere House, includes a first-person interactive performance followed by an educational Powerpoint, illustrating the geography and political climate of Revolutionary Boston. Founding Mothers also have exciting stories to tell; hear Rachel's for new insight into one of the forgotten players of April 19, 1775!

This event will be held via Zoom webinar. $15 members/$20 nonmembers. Purchase tickets here.

“Inextricably Linked” — some call these times “The Great Unraveling.” With our planetary climate crisis, global public health crisis, and escalating racial tensions competing for our attention, it can be easy to overlook their intertwining roots beneath the surface. How can grounding our responses in place and community help spawn an intersectional social movement of citizen activists for “The Great Turning?” Come and honor Earth Day with us as we share a message by Rev. Cindy Davidson, President of the Unitarian Universalist Ministry for Earth. She credits First Parish in Lexington, her “home congregation” since 1988, with launching her call to ministry.

Many of us know the story of the Battle of Lexington - that the plucky band of local militia faced off against the mighty British army on the town common on April 19, 1775. But what actually happened on the Battle Green that day, and how did we get to that point? Join us for a deeper dive into the story of that day as we show our award-winning short film First Shot! The Day the Revolution Began.

Following this viewing, local reenactors with experience recreating the battle will be available to answer your questions about the history of the battle, the context of the Revolutionary War, and what it is like to step back in time and relive the past. Rounding off the program will be a performance by Diane Taraz, founder and leader of the Lexington Historical Society Colonial Singers.

John Adams once wrote, "What do We mean by the Revolution? The War? That was no part of the Revolution. It was only an Effect and Consequence of it. The Revolution was in the Minds of the People, and this was effected, from 1760 to 1775, in the course of fifteen Years before a drop of blood was drawn at Lexington." Throughout the Revolutionary period, the actions of soldiers on the battlefield was only a small part of what turned the colonies into a unified country.

Hear how ordinary Americans in Lexington and beyond - stirred by Jonas Clarke’s fiery sermons and a quest for representation - banded together to make history. Join historian T.H. Breen, author of American Insurgents, American Patriots: The Revolution of the People and The Will of the People: The Revolutionary Birth of America for a closer look at what that revolutionary spirit could accomplish.

Cronin lectures are generously sponsored by Enterprise BankAdmission by donation. Registration opens in early April!

Everyone dreamed of freedom during the Revolution, especially Black Americans. Realizing that the popular rhetoric of the revolution was not meant to include them, many paved their own way to a new life of liberty and happiness.

Join professional storyteller Valerie Tutson to hear the heroic tales of James Forten, who as a teenager fought against the British navy and later worked to abolish slavery, and Elizabeth Freeman, who in 1781 successfully sued for her freedom, citing the Massachusetts constitution which states that "All men are born free and equal." Bring the whole family to learn the exciting history of African American bravery in the time of the Revolution.

British soldiers are generally cast as the villains in the story of April 19th: a long line of killing machines, automatons with no sympathy or commonality with the Americans they fought. Historian Don Hagist has uncovered the truth: the British army was rather a surprisingly diverse group of men, many of whom never dreamed that they would be sent to another country to fight their fellow Englishmen.

Recruited from a variety of colonies, countries, professions, and walks of life, many left behind a surprising amount of information that allows us to learn about their personal stories. Who were these men, why were they here, and what did they think about this war? Tune in to find out!

Admission by donation (free to members of His Majesty's 10th Regiment of Foot). Registration opens in early April.

Lexington's police station is near the end of its useful lifespan, and this Fall the town would like Town Meeting to approve construction of a new police station. This will cost many millions of dollars and serve as our public safety infrastructure for several decades. Therefore, Together We Rise would like the process of envisioning this facility to be as forward-looking as possible. To provide meaningful input, we believe the community needs more information about public safety processes, topics, and models to consider. Together We Rise is holding this forum to: 

1. Provide national and local context for reimagining a forward-looking model of public safety in Lexington.

2. Share Brookline's experience in soliciting community input and updating their model of public safety; a Q&A time will follow.

3. Ask community leaders and town officials to reflect on how all of this might feed into the design of a new Lexington police station or integrated public safety facility.

Please join us to build community consensus on what public safety in Lexington should look like in the decades to come.

Ben Soule has had a life-long interest in the Civil War and for anyone living in the United States of America, that piece of history is still present. Ben’s presentation, “My Civil War Stories,” is about the many moments in his life when the Civil War has reached out from the past and touched him. Travel with him to places as varied as a fort in Boston Harbor, an antiques store in Georgia, a cemetery in Denver, the Lincoln Memorial, and a historic house in Lexington Massachusetts. Meet a remarkable cast of characters from a Boston poet to a Chief of the Cheyenne Nation, from a boy sitting on a fence by a dusty road in Pennsylvania to the Great Emancipator himself. Please join him for the premiere presentation of “My Civil War Stories.”

For a good year now, First Parish church services have come to you via Zoom, YouTube, or Facebook. The music—played by Rip Jackson and other instrumentalists, sung by the choir, the children’s choir, and various soloists—has continued to be a vital part of church. But have you ever wondered how everyone involved has managed to sing or play together when we’ve all been spread out—Rip’s in Florida, Amy’s in DC, Paul’s in South Carolina, Mary’s in Vermont—and basically stuck inside for months on end? Chris Hess, the audio and video wizard behind the music, will describe how this particular bit of sausage is made in the weeks before a piece is part of a service.
