Celebrate our graduating seniors and their work along Massachusetts Avenue!

On view May 22 – August 7 from the Porter Square MBTA Station, one block north of the Lunder Arts Center (1801 Massachusetts Avenue) to Wendell Street and back again! 

In recognition of the wide-ranging impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our student community and neighborhood businesses, we have installed a series of professionally produced vinyl images of student art and design work in storefront windows, recently extended to August 7, 2021.  An “art walk” and roving reception took place the evening of Saturday, May 22nd

We continue to safely celebrate student creators who have missed out on exhibition opportunities in their final two years at Lesley Art + Design, while drawing attention and prospective customers to the businesses along Massachusetts Ave.
