Lynn Arts


The LynnArts building at 25 Exchange Street is part of the Historic Bank Block in Downtown Lynn. While it has retained some of its banking features–including bank vaults on the first and second floors–the building has functioned as an arts center for more than 25 years. Many know the building for the musical talent that has passed through its doorways when popular rock radio station WFNX called LynnArts home (1983-2012), while others know the building for the “Lynn Stories” mural, which beautifully captures the history of Lynn from its early shoemaking days through today. Learn more about the mural and the artists here.

In 2014, the Lynn Museum merged with LynnArts and currently owns and operates the building. LynnArts continues to celebrate and support the creative community in Lynn and the Greater North Shore, offering private studio space for contemporary artists, two gallery spaces, and the Neal Rantoul Black Box Theater.
