Lexington To Add Streetscape Murals

Street Art News

Lexington's public art scene is expected to grow over the next few months.  Street scape murals have become a feature of the downtown area over the last few years. 

LexArts President Jim Clark says four to five new murals will be painted this summer.

"We are identifying the walls right now.  Some will be on private property. I think most will be on private properties, but highly visible.  It really depends on the artist and whether they respond to a particular site.” –Jim Clark

Clark says artists are not commissioned to come to Lexington for a particular mural scene.  The LexArts CEO says there's a lot of flexibility in the mural program, and artists are given the freedom to be creative.
