Join us for Final Fridays, a monthly event that takes place on the last Friday of each month at the Lynn Museum. Each month, we feature a different theme, music, art-making activities, and late-night fun. This April, we are partnering with several arts and culture organizations and creatives for a Gallery Exploration Night.
Galleries at Lynn Arts
The Galleries at LynnArts (GALA) will be showcasing its current exhibit, GREEN, from April 7 to May 17. The exhibit showcases artwork that features the color or concept of Green, as inspired by color psychology. This exhibit invites you to celebrate the Green Movement by submitting your artwork that highlights the color green as a metaphor for saving the environment or as a symbol for a sustainable future.
