WATERTOWN, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) - The residents of Watertown are keeping busy as the pandemic rolls toward a timely conclusion. Art installations are popping up all over town in people's front yards as part of a month-long exhibit called "YardArt Watertown."
Barbara Epstein of Watertown came up with the idea while clearing brush from her back yard. She thought it would be fun to do something with all that material, and then got the idea that the whole city could participate.
Epstein thought of the exhibit as a "town-wide exhibit of ingenuity."
Epstein and her friend, Sally Young, smashed their original goal of 50 pieces of art, with the help of several community organizations. Now, they're up to 140. You can check out a map of all the installations on the Mosesian Center for the Arts website. The art will stay up in people's yards until April 2.
