We are thrilled to have received a grant from the hope & grace fund, a project of New Venture Fund in partnership with the global women's skincare brand philosophy, inc. The Key Idea will be found at NAMI (National Association of Mental Illness) groups across Cape Cod and the Island. We will give folks who suffer from mental illness issues, their caretakers and first responders the opportunity to add their stories of struggle and success.
For about ten years I have been working on large scale community art project that would engage people of all ages. I have dreams of an exhibit in the Smithsonian. It is happening!
The Key to Community, an exhibit of about 500 KeyStories is headed to the Smithsonian's Anacostia Community Museum in October 2018. It will accompany the primary exhibit on gentrification. I am thrilled to bring this community project to DC.
We are celebrating our one year anniversary as a nonprofit, The Key Idea, Inc.

I feel like am the keeper of dreams-people often write about their goals and desires.
…and I turned sixty, 288 hours ago, my motto for this year is Ask
This key unlocks the doors to imagination, it shows you that the sky is the limit. Anything is possible!
Keystones are being found- Jan 30 894.1; just outside Osterville Library
I am overwhelmed and so excited about the community response to walking for art. So many people want to be involved in placing the Keystones for others to find. What find! Leaving treasures with the hopes of others discovering them. Who will find this one on the Upper Cape? It's waiting for you.
Making Keystones to place all over Cape Cod. I am hoping that folks will smile when they find these little treasures. Then, I hope they will be inspired to visit the website and share a dream for 2016...for themselves, the community or the world.
Lenore Lyons is passionate about igniting the spark that happens when people think creatively and get big ideas. There is something about riffling through a large tray of keys that encourages people of all ages to think about possibilities for their life and their loved ones.
