Thanks to the countless creatives around here, we like to think of Lexington as an open-air museum. If you’ve ever had interest in contributing your talents to our vibrant city, now’s your chance.

Lexington’s Public Art Commission will host a workshop on Tuesday, April 23 at the Pam Miller Downtown Arts Center, 5:30-7:30 p.m., where artists and organizations who are curious about participating in public arts projects can learn more about how to get involved.

Here, you can see presentations about our Percent for Art Program, learn how to apply to the Collaborative Art program, and network with fellow creatives. Plus, experienced local artists will be there to answer questions and offer advice when it comes to seeking commissions and responding to Call to Artists.

The workshop is free and open to the public, but will also be recorded and shared to the city’s website for those who cannot attend.
