    Contact: Cristina Burwell   781-862-6040

The ArtWalk committee is working with several town entities, students and art groups to enhance the appearance of the barriers in the center. These barriers are part of a state grant, and have been placed to provide additional outdoor seating options for dining, attracting customers and others walking around.  

Artists were invited to submit work this past month. Artists created artwork on special 18 x 24” blank lawn-signs, selected for their cost effectiveness and durability in the outdoors, which the ArtWalk committee members fixed to the barriers. Artists were welcome to "adopt a barrier" and submit up to 4 art panels (live area of 72”x24”). Artwork will be placed over the orange barriers only. Artists could design as one full piece of artwork or break it up in 4 different pieces. The committee requested that the artists use bold and strong designs so there is more visibility from afar, and encouraged artists to incorporate the color orange to be more cohesive with the orange color of the barriers that will be visible above and below the panels.

Art panels were curated by the ArtWalk Committee and placed on display starting September 12th and will last while the weather permits. The only restrictions are that no political or religious thoughts are expressed, and the artwork and images are family friendly. Questions can be emailed to

Local artists and Lexington students are working together to enhance the look of barriers situated in Lexington Center. These barriers were provided by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, arrived a few weeks ago, and are situated to provide outdoor seating for residents visiting retailers.

Special Needs Arts Programs, Inc., (SNAP) program registration is open. Due to the need to socially distance and limit group size because of COVID-19, as well as the present closure of the Lexington Community Center, SNAP will offer their Sing Along Chorus, Special Artists and Crafts programs virtually over Zoom. 

The Fall Special Artists session is full. Spots are still available in Sing Along Chorus and Crafts. 

Sing Along Chorus has a Monday and Wednesday group that rehearses at 7pm starting September 9th. Crafts is a four week program and will begin on November 17th. Art supplies will be mailed and/or delivered to all participants to complete the four projects. Advanced registration is required. 

Registration is available for both Sing Along Chorus and Crafts on the SNAP website, You can also register for our winter session of Special Artists.

SNAP is excited to be a part of the “barrier beautification” project in downtown Lexington. The initiative, launched by the ArtWalk Committee will help to beautify the barriers provided to make space for outdoor dining and walking downtown. Please look for the SNAP artwork downtown and use the QR code on the Special Artists banner to give us your feedback on seeing art made by people with disabilities. 

Support for SNAP art exhibits was provided by a grant from the Community Endowment of Lexington, an endowed fund of the Foundation for MetroWest. If you would like to support the SNAP Giving Tree with a donation or learn more about our programs, you can also click on the QR codes on the SNAP banners. SNAP is appreciative to the ArtWalk Committee for their leadership and for being included in this “barrier beautification” initiative.

Lexington Center Fall ArtWalk Returns

Premier Art Exhibit announces a 6th year

Call to Artists

The ArtWalk Committee announces its sixth consecutive year hosting the town-wide art event that excites and delivers, this year with art adorning shop windows throughout Lexington Center from Columbus Day to Thanksgiving.  

As in years’ past, artists from Lexington and surrounding areas are encouraged to submit work to the committee to be curated and displayed in retailer windows this fall. For those interested in applying, this art event has few limitations, so artists can submit creations in all different art mediums. The show displays a mix of 2D and 3D art and there are no size restrictions. All artwork from artists older than 10 years will be considered. Although not all artwork must be available for sale, artist contact information and pricing are displayed with the artwork. Some artists have successfully sold their displayed art, and often found new admirers of their work through the program.    

Leading up to the Fall Artwalk, the Artwalk Committee has kept busy. The committee "hosted" a summer "Block Party”, where 4” square blocks were creatively decorated and displayed in town. More recently they worked with local artists and students to beautify the jersey barriers set up by the town, which created more outdoor seating and business areas.  

With respect to present health guidelines, the Artwalk Guided Tour and Evening Reception, that usually kicks off the event, will unfortunately not take place this year. It was originally planned to coincide with the Lexington Chamber of Commerce’s Fine Arts & Crafts Festival which is now online. However, viewers can participate in a scavenger hunt allowing for individual and family enjoyment and movement about town, and those that complete the hunt will be entered into a drawing for a Lexington Chamber of Commerce gift certificate.  

Submissions and registration fees ($10) are due by October 4th. For more information about the event and to apply to display your art, visit the Munroe Center website: or email:

Lexington Historical Society is happy to announce we will be able to open Buckman Tavern on a limited basis with a hybrid outdoor/indoor guided tour! During the tour, participants will gather outside with a Lexington Historical Society guide to learn the history of Buckman Tavern and the role it played in the Battle of Lexington. After this brief chat, visitors will be guided through the historic 1710 tavern and be able to view the period rooms that up until this point have been closed to visitors since March 2020. Visitors will have time to view artifacts and ask questions of LHS guides during this abbreviated tour of the interior of Buckman Tavern.
During the tour, all social distancing practices and mandated Massachusetts State Regulations and Requirements will be observed. Please remember to stay the length of a British Grenadier (6 feet) away from other visitors and to always wear your mask so that we can keep both our visitors and staff as safe as we can.

Hybrid tours of Buckman Tavern will begin on Saturday October 3 and will be offered daily through Thanksgiving from 10 AM – 2:30 PM every 45 minutes. Online reservations are recommended and will be available for booking starting on October 1.
