New Holiday Art Coming to Old Town Street Lamps

This weekend, the Old Town Business Association is planning to install a holiday update to Alexandria’s street lamps.

“Starting today, the art is being installed on the selected lamp posts in Old Town,” the Old Town Business Association said in a press release. “The arts are alive in Old Town this holiday season with the debut of its first-holiday art walk.”

Several lamp posts in Old Town will feature new art from 25 artists from The Art League. The majority of the art will be located along the 100-1800 blocks of King Street, with a few on select side streets.

“Old Town Business collaborated with 25 artists from The Art League to create holiday-themed lamp post art pieces along King Street and select side streets,” the Old Town Business Association said. “A map of the artwork will be created so folks can stroll the art walk at their own leisure.”
