Community arts organization, LexArt and LexHAB, a Lexington-based affordable housing organization, collaborate on a joint art exhibition titled "HOME" that links both missions. The juried show will run from
October 28 through November 19, 2023, at the Nye Gallery in Lexington, MA. The show is open to artists in New England working in all media.
The exhibit, HOME, will focus on the essential role housing plays in our lives and the importance of affordable housing. Whether it is a physical place or an idea, 'home' can mean something different at each stage of life and varies by culture and geography. Housing as shelter is a universal human need that is inaccessible for too many, locally and globally.
A shelter is a need, a house can be a haven, a nest can be empty, a home can be inhabitable: climate change, income inequality, racism, violence, love, community, and family are just a few of the factors that impact our concept of home and our ability to attain and maintain a home. We invite you to reflect on this theme and to submit a work of art that shares your perspective on the notion of 'home.'
