Venetians painted on canvas. Byzantine art often appeared on wood. And Springfield residents are using their yards for an art project meant to cheer people up during the coronavirus pandemic.
Starting Friday, art will displayed in Springfield yards as part of Lawn Art With Neighbors, or L.A.W.N. for short. The Springfield Art Museum says the idea is to create art—like sculptures, paintings, or video projections—in yards for others to enjoy.
A spokesman for the Springfield Art Museum, Joshua Best, says the museum plans to continue L.A.W.N after the pandemic.
