One of my favorite Westchester events is almost here! ArtsWestchester’s Annual ArtsBash Weekend includes an exclusive ArtsBash party on Friday, May 19th, combining art and food, followed by Family ArtsBash celebration on Saturday, May 20th.

The party circles around the gallery’s newest exhibit, “From the Streets: An Exhibition of Urban Art,” displaying graffiti murals, photography, sculptures and mixed media street art.

Janet Langsam, CEO of ArtsWestchester gives us the skinny about the 2017 ArtsBash celebration in White Plains Friday, May 19th.

The Friday party is open to the public and will feature food and beverages from more than 25 local restaurants, including Baked by Susan, Coffee Labs Roasters, License2Grill, Cafe of Love, Crabtree’s Kittle House, and Meritage Restaurant.  You will also have the opportunity to hobnob with this year’s participating artists in their open studios throughout ArtsWestchester’s historic downtown White Plains building.

The day after the ArtsBash party, families and children of all ages are encouraged to participate in a day of fun at Family ArtsBash on Saturday, May 20, from 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. Kids can partake in a variety of hands-on art activities and artist-led workshops. Activities include a chocolate art-making activity, drumming circles, clay and felt making workshops, spin art and more.
