Wednesday, October 7, 2015 6-8PM
Lynn Museum, 590 Washington St, Lynn, MA.
In October 2014, the Lynn Museum and LynnArts merged, joining the city’s long respected historical society with one of the North Shore’s premier centers for visual and performing arts.
To celebrate the merger and highlight the union of these two vibrant cultural institutions, the LynnArts community has been invited to showcase their works in a new contemporary art exhibit, “Present Tense: A LynnArts Exhibit” at the Lynn Museum.
“We are proud and excited to host this group exhibition featuring works by resident artists from LynnArts in the Museum’s exhibit space. The art featured represents a broad spectrum of styles, mediums, and subjects that are being explored by contemporary artists in Lynn.” said Lynn Museum/LynnArts Executive Director Drew Russo.
The exhibit opening will feature live music, refreshments, an opportunity to interact with the artists, and learn more about the Lynn Museum/LynnArts merger. Admission is free for Lynn Museum/LynnArts members and $5 for non-members. For more information or to RSVP, please call (781) 581-6200 or e-mail Collections Specialist Britt Bowen, who is coordinating the “Present Tense” exhibit, firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the heart of Lynn’s Arts & Cultural District, the Lynn Museum was founded in 1897 to collect, preserve and illuminate the city’s remarkable history. The museum has evolved into a vibrant cultural center, expanding its footprint to include the LynnArts building at 25 Exchange Street, with its artist studios, exhibition galleries, the Neal Rantoul Vault Theatre, and other innovative spaces, providing a stage for creativity to thrive in Lynn and throughout the North Shore.
This exhibition is on view through December 19, 2015.
