Last year, a community art project was created in Springfield in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Lawn Art With Neighbors (L.A.W.N.) was established last April.  And it’s being brought back this year.

The program seeks to empower public art made by the people as a contribution to Springfield’s sense of place and the built environment we all share, according to the Springfield Art Museum.

Last year, there were 65 projects, including sculptures, paintings, installations, video projections, podcasts and more.

Anyone can participate by creating a work of art using materials available at home and displaying it in front of their residence.  April 16th is the first deadline.
