Excellent tour - insightful and beautiful! We were very impressed with everything we saw - a very full 2 hours! Lexington has quite a bit of local art to share. Wear good shoes as it can double as great art for the mind with a good walk for the body.

Having lived in Lexington, we were aware of it’s active art scene, but on this tour we discovered numerous murals and sculptures that we hadn’t seen before and learned how the community supports artists with global impact. Very informative. Kate was a fabulous guide!

I’ve lived in Lexington for 6 years now my husband was born here and we see these pieces almost everyday and we never knew the story behind most these pieces! Loved the tour our tour guide is awesome!

We had a great walk! Kate is very knowledgeable and downtown Lexington is beautiful with lots of history and creativity on every corner. The earpieces worked great, and we could hear Kate wherever we were walking. We loved it!

A most enjoyable experience. Within an easily walkable area of downtown Lexington, we visited parks, outdoor sculptures, the library, the visitors' center, and several galleries, concluding at Artists' Attic studio space. I particularly liked New Editions gallery and its Rodney Hatfield exhibit. Kate Savage was a knowledgeable and entertaining guide, though her habit of walking half a block ahead of her group was a little trying. My group of friends felt that an hour and a half would have been a preferable duration to two hours. However, we were glad that we had signed up and appreciated our expanded knowledge of the Lexington art scene.
