The Little Free Art Gallery (FLAG) that was installed last summer on the the front lawn of the Morse Institute Library in Natick Center will reopen on Jan. 22nd after undergoing a minor facelift. Apparently the hinges needed to be tightened, the lighting fixed, some minor roof repairs were done, and the paint was touched up. Able volunteer Paul McEachern, who had a big hand in the concept and creation of the FLAG, handled the fix-up job.
Since the rigors of an outdoor setting has proven too much for the sensitive and artistic structure, which was designed as a space where small pieces of original art could be donated and/or taken home by community members, the gallery will be moved to a newly created “Art Nook” inside the library

Stop by the Marshall Lebowitz Meeting Hall, where a photography exhibit currently is hung. Here are a couple examples:
Town Hall art
If you’re stopping by Town Hall to pay your property taxes (due Feb. 1); get Fido’s license renewed by March 1st; or register to vote in Natick’s March 29th annual election (the last day to register is Wednesday, March 9, 2022), don’t forget to admire the artwork that hangs in the lobby, much of it by Natick residents.
Oh, and if you don’t want to run those taxes/dog license/voter registration chores in-person, Natick has an online system to help you take care of those chores from the comfort of your home. Links here.
