YardArt Watertown “PaTRASHia” was one of the pieces made for Watertown’s YardArt.

The following announcement was provided by YardArt:

YardArt returns to Watertown this year for the entire month of April. The community-wide event begins Monday, April 1 and lasts through Tuesday, April 30, 2024. A variety of artful and whimsical installations will be displayed on front yards, porches, and storefronts throughout Watertown.

Watertown residents, families, organizations, clubs, classes, artists, and businesses are invited to create something of their own–a gizmo, a sculpture, an art project, a lighting arrangement—let your imagination run free! This year YardArt invites folks to contact us if they are interested in displaying larger pieces in a public space. 

Register online for YardArt Watertown at This is a free event.

YardArt locations are marked by lawn signs and appear on an interactive online map — coming to the YardArt website at the end of March.

YardArt was launched in 2021 when a few neighbors in East Watertown were cooking up creative ways to work around the restrictions of the pandemic. 

YardArt Watertown is a project of the Watertown Cultural Council in collaboration with the Watertown Public Arts and Culture Committee, the Mosesian Center for the Arts, Hatch Makerspace, Live Well Watertown, Watertown Art Association and Watertown Bike and Pedestrian Committee; supported by Watertown Community Foundation, Watertown Business Coalition, and Watertown Public Schools.
