Celebration of the Arts

On October 6, New Paltz’s Hasbrouck Park will look like a DIY arts carnival, where everything down to the bean bag toss is homemade. The annual explosion of culture returns to the spot where it got its start six years ago, showcasing work from over 100 fine artists. In addition, there will be live painting throughout town with New York City graffiti artist outfit Pure TFP, large-scale sculptural installations, and live music by Dylan Emmet Band and Rhett Miller. Through the month of September, COTA Corridors will exhibit 22 site-specific art installations at New Paltz businesses, and work by the Brooklyn street artist GILF will be at the Main Street Bistro. Readings by local authors include Jacky Davis and David Soman, Iza Trapani, Jennifer Castle, and a reading of The Submission by author Amy Waldman’s. Children’s activities will include chances to create Picasso-inspired collages, Michelangelo drawings, and Monet watercolor paintings. Listen to music, meet local artists as they exhibit their work, and take part in hands-on activities—maybe even at the same time. 11am-5pm.
