After painting the town and seeing success after its launch last May, the Art on the Town program is returning for a second year this spring.

Through the initiative, the city provides free mobile art carts for local artists to display, demonstrate, and sell their work. Think: live watercolor or oil paintings, pottery, basket weaving, and more.

There are eight carts available that can be set up along Vine Street on the Town Branch Commons, between the Marriott and Broadway.

Interested Kentucky artists are invited to apply and reserve their spot by emailing Heather Lyons, Lexington Director of Arts and Cultural Affairs. Note: Artists are required to attend one of these upcoming Artist Orientation Sessions. 👇

  • Wednesday, Feb. 1 at 5:30 p.m.
  • Thursday, Feb. 9 at 5:30 p.m.

Find more details on the program.
