If you haven't made it to the Spring ArtWalk, what are you waiting for? This is the ideal kind of small-town community celebration that makes everyone feel good.
In various locations around town, you'll find art on display and music to listen to. I'll be at ArtSpace Downtown, where you can see the student work of three ArtSpace art teachers, plus ArtSpace's very own classical guitarist, Berit Srong performing with her students. You can also check out the chairs that we're auctioning to help raise money for the Maynard Public Schools' arts budget. Mr. Mark's new throne will be there, too. Stop in and write him a note that we'll give him when we give him the new chair.
