Lewiston Council on the Arts cancels Art Festival, 2020 summer events

Fri, May 22nd 2020 11:10 am

From the Lewiston Council on the Arts:

Lewiston Council on the Arts regretfully announces the cancelation of this year's summer events due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “Bug Fest,” the “Summer of '69,” the “Blue Monday” concert series and the Lewiston Art Festival and KeyBank Chalk Walk Competition will return in 2021.

We will miss our audiences, welcoming artists from across the country and seeing Center Street filled with thousands of visitors.

Artists who were accepted into this year's festival will have an opportunity to exhibit and sell their work on LCA Facebook page.

Everyone can be a chalk artist as we take this year’s KeyBank Chalk Walk Competition online and open it up as a virtual competition. People of all ages are encouraged to create a chalk masterpiece in their driveways or on the sidewalks of their neighborhood. There is no specific theme – we want to see what inspires you. Whatever it is, we invite you to put the chalk to pavement and bring your vision to life and send us a photo.

A substantial cash prize will be awarded to the winner. For more information or updates, check our website at www.artcouncil.org.

We want to extend our heartfelt gratitude to our sponsors for their unwavering support and flexibility: the Town of Lewiston, Village of Lewiston, Elderwood at Wheatfield, Modern Corporation, KeyBank, ASIWNY and the New York State Council on the Arts.
