Lexington Artists Display Talent this Summer … More to come this Fall

Lexington's Artwalk Committee introduced a new town initiative this summer, a twist on the “block party” of years gone by, which also respects the need for social distancing.  Starting in early July, retailers around Lexington offered their windows to exhibit 4” x 4” wood blocks that were repurposed as works of art.  The creative pool of artists includes residents and local talent.  Over 75 blocks have been submitted, curated and exhibited throughout Lexington, with more entries coming.  This was a great opportunity for Lexingtonians to unleash their imagination and spice up Lexington Center shop windows, and invites us all to take a stroll and enjoy artwork by friends, colleagues and neighbors.

Where to view:

In East Lexington:  Walden Framer, MA France and Jackson’s Kitchen

In Lexington Center:  TD Bank, Signature Stationers, DCU, Coldwell Banker, La Flamme Barbers, Verizon, Michelson’s Shoes, Firefly Moon, Eye Look Optical, Leading Edge RE, La Dolda,

When to view:

ArtWalk this fall:

ArtWalk will be launched this coming fall.  As with Block Party, the artists do not have to be from Lexington, and pieces can reflect all media including 2D & 3D art.  Submissions and registration fees ($10) are due by October 4th.  For more information, visit this web page.  https://www.munroecenter.org/artwalk---call.html

“This summer, Lexington’s Block Party has created a special opportunity for inspiration, color and imagination, to lighten your hearts and enjoy a walk through Lexington,“ says ArtWalk Committee member Jean Hart.

Together and Apart A 25 year marriage. Together.
Over 60 years working in the arts in different fields. Apart.
A dramatist and an artist interview each other about their favorite things: treasured objects from the MFA collection, beloved texts from the American Theatre, and a pop quiz.Because even after 25 years together, there are still things that can surprise them both.
 
BIOS
Matthew Siegal is the Chair of Conservation and Collections Management at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. He has a 32 year art museum career and has worked on 4 continents (and slated for Australia this spring…) He specializes in the moving and mounting of massive statues, and speaks internationally about the role of museums in addressing climate change.  Matthew is also on the Board of Trustees at Lex Art. He spends all his free time outside, and is especially skilled at seeing Bald Eagles everywhere.
 
Melinda Lopez is the Artist-in-Residence at the Huntington Theatre Company, and an award-winning  playwright and performer. Her plays have been performed all over the United States, and also in Cuba. She has received recognition from The Kennedy Center, the Mass Cultural Council, the Mellon Foundation, and the Elliott Norton Award for Sustained Excellence in 2019. Mayor Marty Walsh designated October 29, 2016 "Melinda Lopez Day in the City of Boston” in honor of her twenty-five year career as a playwright, performer and educator. She serves on the Board of Friends of Caritas Cuba, which provides humanitarian aid to the people of Cuba. She also plays a little ukulele.
Matthew and Melinda will celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary on October 1, 2020. They have hiked about two thousand miles through desert canyons, and snowy peaks, through Gates of the Arctic National Park in Alaska, and crisscrossing the Continental Divide, most recently in the San Juan mountains of Colorado (where they were definitely not lost.)​
