Community Art Wall Exhibit

5th Grade Legacy Project Lane Elementary School

This collaborative mural was created by the 2021-2022 5th graders of Lane Elementary School in Bedford. During the project, students practiced connecting as artists as they reflected on their experiences at Lane, created unique pen and ink designs to personalize their squares, and worked together to assemble this collaborative piece for display in their school and community.

The Community Art Wall is located opposite the entrance to the Children’s Room.

The Library offers exhibit space for emerging artists on the wall across from the Children’s Room.   We encourage students to apply. Each exhibit generally is up for two months, though there is some flexibility in dates.  If you are interested in showing your work, please contact Library Director Richard Callaghan [email protected] 781-275-9440.
All work submitted must be original and not previously shown at the Bedford Free Public Library.
