The Lyons Arts & Humanities Commission began a summer “Art Walk” program last year, as a way to attract and expose out-of-town visitors, as well area residents, to the vibrant art scene in the community. This summer, the reins have been handed over to local artists Devin and Serina Chiaramonte of
Metamorphosis on Main Street, and the couple plan to add a few new wrinkles to the event.
“We are trying to do something a little different. As well as local art galleries, we are calling out to all local artists in Lyons and other surrounding areas such as Boulder, Longmont, Fort Collins, etc.,” says Devin. “All participating artists who will be exhibiting their work will make 100% of the profit, adds Serina. There will be no fee for setting up a vendor booth. “We want to celebrate artists and their work as well as get them as much exposure as they can get while making the Art Walk fun for the whole family to attend.”
