No place brought us together in 2020 quite like our driveways. Driveways became safe places to celebrate milestones and canvases for heartwarming chalk art messages.
Lexus has been celebrating driveway moments for over 20 years with our iconic “December to Remember” sales events. This holiday season, we’re bringing driveway cheer to communities across the country while raising money for Toys for Tots.
Lexus has commissioned emerging artists in five cities to create inspiring murals that reflect their communities. Mural production is underway at select dealerships:
Lexus of Orland Park – Pugs Atomz
Pugs Atomz’s Chicago roots run deep. A multi-talented artist in video, fashion, design and music, his vibrant artwork showcases the diversity and heritage of his Chicago community.
McGrath Lexus of Westmont – Langston Allston
Champaign, Illinois native Langston Allston is a painter and muralist working in Chicago. His artwork is focused on spreading love, hope and optimism in his community.
Thompson Lexus Willow Grove – Miriam Singer
Philadelphia artist Miriam Singer’s work is inspired by the local cityscape, using a combination of printmaking and drawing media to create works on paper and designs for public art projects.
Lexus of Bakersfield – Nina Palomba
Nina Palomba’s whimsical art style blends street and pop art, inspired by her home state of California. Her artwork focuses on being inclusive, positive and family-focused and is an illustrative narrative of her life.
Lexus of Pembroke Pines – Cinthia Santos
A Cuban native, Miami-based Cinthia Santos is famous for her hand-lettered chalk menus. Cinthia is a self-taught lettering artist, skilled illustrator and self-proclaimed crazy plant lady.
Park Place Lexus – Catie Lewis
Austin-based Catie Lewis is an independent artist and muralist originally from the Philippines. A self-taught painter, she’s best known for her oil paintings, line drawings and large-scale murals for homes and businesses.
The final murals will be revealed on Lexus social channels the week of December 14.
