First Art Walk Planned for June 26, 2020 

Lewiston, Maine, March 19, 2020 – LA Arts, the arts agency of Lewiston and Auburn, today announced an open call for artists, artisans and performers for the Art Walk LA 2020 season. PLEASE NOTE: While the COVID-19 pandemic has prompted the Art Walk LA Committee to cancel the May 2020 art walk, the team hopes to bring back the festive monthly community arts celebration on June 26, 2020. 

Art Walk LA turns the downtown into a bustling arts district on the final Friday of each month from May* through September, converting outdoor plazas, sidewalks, and more than 20 businesses and storefronts into lively art galleries and performance spaces. 

Area artists, artisans, and performers are encouraged to register at

Art Walk LA brings thousands of people to downtown Lewiston and Auburn, making it a cultural staple and a great opportunity for exhibitors and performers to connect with audiences. LA Arts and the Art Walk LA committee look forward to working with all of this year’s artists and performers.
