ArtsFest Taking Place in New Rochelle

NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. –  The New Rochelle Council on the Arts is putting on an Artsfest on Saturday, Sept. 24, and Sunday, Sept. 25 from 12:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. each day.

The festival will feature the multiple arts and art venues throughout the city, including art exhibits, programs and activities, which provide visitors and residents an opening to the city’s affluent cultural and artistic diversity.

Attractions include an antique car show, a chance to visit the studio of internationally acclaimed pop artist Charles Fazzino, a free performance by the Dance Theatre of Harlem Ensemble, and an opportunity to contribute to the creation of piece of public art.

The celebration will include art installations, tours of artist’s studios, live music, family-friendly crafts, great food, exciting performances, and two free “Culture Trolleys” providing “hop on – hop off” transportation to the activities taking place in public and private cultural institutions throughout the city.

“The arts are essential to healthy communities,” said New Rochelle Council on the Arts President Judith Weber. “The arts bring people together and spark dialogue, which generates community spirit. ArtsFest is all about community."

This year’s fest will have a charitable event entitled “Empty Bowls for Hope, held in the transform Showroom and Gallery on Sept. 24 from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Guests will purchase a bowl made by a local artist and fill it with soup donated by local restaurants; all proceeds will benefit HOPE Community Services.

“It’s a way to remind everybody that there are always empty bowls in the world,” Weber said.
