“Rethink Downtown” exhibit is part of the Lewiston Downtown Master Plan, funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts "Our Town" grant secured by Beautiful Downtown Lewiston Revitalization Corp.
The "Rethink Downtown" exhibit will be at the Center from February 1 through March 23, 2019. This exhibit is intended to prompt community members to rethink their perceptions of downtown Lewiston.
“Lego Lewiston,” developed under the guidance of artist Kelsey Grafton, is a three-dimensional interpretation of the downtown area that encourages patrons and families to imagine different creative modes of pedestrian transportation on the existing rails and other additions to the landscape, including a gondola ride, splash pad and performance venue.
Downtown Building and Business Owners were called to show their community pride by constructing their building for the "Lego Lewiston" installation.
Second Saturday: Family Art Day, at the LCSC Center for Arts and History, led by artist Kelsey Grafton, encouraged families to imagine and build their dreams for downtown “Lego Lewiston”.
January’s 47 participants constructed a drive in movie theater, aquarium, zip lines, tree houses, water sports, carousel, gondola ride, a picnic table in an igloo and an ice cream parlor, to name just a few.
All works created are on display at the LCSC Center for Arts & History during the Rethink Downtown Exhibit, from February 1st through March 23rd.
Legos are on hand throughout the exhibit and on February’s Second Saturday. Come join the fun!
“Rethink Downtown” and the “LEGO Lewiston” project are sponsored in part by a National Endowment for the Arts “Our Town” grant obtained by Beautiful Downtown Lewiston Revitalization Corp.
