Opening Reception: Saturday, October 28, 4pm-6pm
Housing Round Table: November 2, 5pm-7pm
LexHAB ‘HOME’ Fundraiser: November 16, 5:30pm-7:30pm
LexHAB, an affordable housing organization, and LexArt, announce an exciting new collaboration that links both missions: an art exhibition, titled ‘HOME’, from October 28 through November 19, 2023 at the Nye Gallery in Lexington, MA.
HOME will focus on the theme of ‘home’ and the role of housing in our lives. Whether it is a physical place or an idea, ‘home’ can mean something different at each stage of life and varies by culture and geography. Housing as shelter is a universal human need that is inaccessible for too many, locally and globally. A shelter is a need, a house can be a haven, a nest can be empty, a home can be inhabitable: climate change, income inequality, racism, violence, love, community, and family are just a few of the factors that impact our concept of home and our ability to attain and maintain a home. All submitted works of art share this perspective on the notion of ‘home’.
