In one of his sunnier moments, Friedrich Nietzsche wrote, “Art is the proper task of life.” Seek and enjoy the power of art this weekend with the Lawrence ArtWalk. More than 50 Douglas County artists will exhibit their works in 24 spaces in and around Lawrence. Slated for showcase are such standbys as paintings, sculptures and photographs, plus mixed media and new-school work in digital art. Art fans can choose their own adventure by picking up a guide map, which lists locations and artists, at the Lawrence Arts Center (940 New Hampshire). The free, all-ages walk takes place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. today and continues Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. For more information, see lawrenceartwalk.org or call 785-843-2787.
