Brand new murals in Lake Worth

It’s that time of year again when the promise of new work and blank walls bring some of the world’s top muralists to Palm Beach County. The funky, art-filled burg of Lake Worth receives a few fresh coats of paint this week for the 2017 CANVAS Outdoor Museum Show. Mural artists such as D*Face, Hula, Kobra, Okuda, Sipros and Jennifer Chaparo have taken over the downtown avenues of Lake and Lucerne, creating site-specific, large-scale works throughout this week. While their art will remain on view indefinitely, be sure to visit this weekend to see each artist finish their masterpieces live.

CANVAS Outdoor Museum Show Lake Worth: On display throughout downtown Lake Worth. For exact locations, visit www.canvasmuseum.org

SPLURGE

Rock at the Cultural Council

Back in the 1980s and early 1990s, Jason Newsted toured the world as the bass guitarist for Metallica. Today, he’s pursuing a decidedly different career as a visual artist — but he hasn’t left his rock star days behind. His group, Jason Newsted and The Chophouse Band, will perform Friday night at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County in downtown Lake Worth. The band’s acoustic-folk style is sure to provide the perfect background for an artsy start to your weekend.

Jason Newsted and The Chophouse Band:

7:30 p.m. Friday. $25 online. $35 at the door. Seating is limited. Cultural Council of Palm Beach County, 601 Lake Ave., Lake Worth. Info: 561-472-3338 or www.palmbeachculture.com/newsted
