Lewiston, Maine, February 22, 2021 – If we can’t safely gather a large crowd in downtown Lewiston-Auburn for an art walk right now, we’ll bring Art Walk L-A to you! The next “virtual” Art Walk L-A happens Friday, February 26, 2021 on www.laarts.org/artwalk/, YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram. This month we feature art and performances from the Bates Winter Arts Festival:
- Original artwork by Bates Arts Society members
- Bates College Deansmen perform “A Change in my Life” by Rockapella
- Original song by LuisDa Molina-Rueda
- Magic by Abby Segal
- Poem in Hindi by festival coordinator and international student Kush Sharma
- Local Writers Read 2020 Maine Literary Award Finalists Series
- And more!
LA Arts and the Art Walk LA Committee are also pleased to present the 2021 Art Walk Artists online gallery. Artists and artisans included on this page each have works for sale; please support them with your purchases! Visual artists and artisans can register free and we’ll share your work on this web page throughout the season. 100% of art sale proceeds go to artists and makers.
Virtual Art Walk LA and all LA Arts programs would not be possible without the generous support of community partners including Community Arts Champion sponsors Acadia Insurance, Austin Associates, P.A., Bates College, Baxter Brewing Co., Berman & Simmons, the City of Auburn, the City of Lewiston, Liberty Mutual, the Sun Journal as well as the Davis Family Foundation, Maine Arts Commission, Maine Community Foundation, the Onion Foundation, and the Ladd Foundation.
Since 1973, LA Arts, the arts agency for the cities of Lewiston and Auburn Maine, has pursued a mission to engage and inspire a vibrant community through arts and culture. The agency works with governments, businesses, schools and local arts and cultural organizations to create opportunities for community members across the generations to experience, learn, and participate in the arts. LA Arts organizes arts programs and initiatives, supports the work of local artists and arts organizations, and highlights the essential role the arts play in shaping an economically vital, socially integrated, and forward-looking future for its community.
