FINAL FRIDAYS: GALLERY NIGHT

FINAL FRIDAYS: GALLERY NIGHT

Join us on the last Friday of each month for Final Fridays! Each month features a different theme, music, art-making activities, and late-night fun at the Lynn Museum.

Our April program is a Gallery Night, partnering with several arts and culture organizations and creatives for a fun night out. Head to the Lynn Museum/LynnArts (590 Washington Street), Galleries at LynnArts (25 Exchange Street, First Floor), Raw Art Works (37 Central Square), and Beyond Walls (18 Mt. Vernon Street) for different activities, performances, and visual artworks.

Galleries at Lynn Arts – The Galleries at LynnArts (GALA) will showcase its current exhibit, GREEN, from April 7 to May 17. The exhibition showcases artwork that features the color or concept of Green, as inspired by color psychology. This exhibit invites you to celebrate the Green Movement by submitting your artwork highlighting the color green as a metaphor for saving the environment or a symbol for a sustainable future.

Lynn Music Foundation at Frederick Douglass Park – Join them for an electrifying night of Hip Hop culture and music at “Grab the Mic,” presented by the Lynn Hip Hop Wall of Fame on the upcoming Final Friday and hosted by the incomparable Mr. PSA with DJ Slipwax on the 1s and 2s! In case of inclement weather, this event will move inside the Lynn Museum (590 Washington Street).

This event will serve as an incredible showcase of Hip Hop culture and music and kick off the Lynn Hip Hop Wall of Fame voting season! This is your chance to come out and support your favorite Hip Hop artists who have made a solid contribution to the culture in Lynn and to celebrate their achievements. Don’t miss this opportunity to witness some of the best Hip Hop artists in the game as they take the stage to Grab the Mic and show off their skills. Whether you’re a seasoned Hip Hop aficionado or a newcomer to the culture, this event is sure to be a memorable experience for all.

Lynn Museum/ Lynn Arts – The Lynn Museum/Lynn Arts will also have several exhibits on display, including A Place of Inspiration: Images That Capture the Spirit of Lynn, a retrospective of work by Yetti Frenkel. This exhibit showcases Frenkel’s journey in creating a series of images inspired by Lynn. Check out their newest exhibition, Untold Stories: Community Changemakers, featuring photographs, family memorabilia, ephemera from the Lynn community, and artifacts from the Lynn Museum’s collection that highlight Lynn’s Black history.

We will also have guest artist Zahirha Nur Truth of ZNT Arts lead a fun interactive arts engagement session from 6-7:30 pm in Frederick Douglass Park! Come create your very own mini masterpiece through printmaking with stamps, add illustrative details, and be inspired. Then, hang your art in the outdoor gallery and pose for a selfie! In case of inclement weather, this event will move inside the Lynn Museum (590 Washington Street).

Beyond Walls – Join Beyond Walls for an evening of creative community brainstorming featuring Keif Schliefer, a profound artist and professor passionate about building more civic engagement in Lynn through the arts. Keif will facilitate creative activities for all ages that honor Lynn and encourage community input on local public art programs this year and beyond. As Beyond Walls plans our upcoming street art installations, education programs, and designed response projects throughout the city, we want to hear your thoughts! Share your voice and join in on the fun!

Feel free to reach out to jahnyah@lynnmuseum.org for more details.
