Lewiston, Maine, September 23, 2020 – 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, September 25, 2020 on www.laarts.org/artwalk/, YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram and includes visual arts, music, prose poetry, and more, featuring:
- Jim Parakilas and Mary Hunter perform Johannes Brahms, Sonata in G for Piano and Violin, Op. 78: Vivace ma non troppo
- Local Writers Read genre spotlight: personal essay, featuring writers Paulla Estes and Sue Repko
- Time-lapse drawing by Samuel W. Grant
