Taking place on Saturday, September 25th, this 16th annual festival will hopefully include eclectic live music, mouth-watering food vendors, hands-on arts and crafts workshops and, of course, the beloved live painting of original murals. While we look forward to these vibrant activities at this year’s event, due to the rise in COVID-19 cases, adjustments to the event schedule may be necessary to comply with updated guidelines and safety measures.
This year’s theme, “The Future Through Your Eyes,” invites artists to envision what they anticipate or hope to see as our world continues to evolve socially, culturally, environmentally, and economically.
Participation in this event is free; basic paints, brushes, and a primed surface are provided! All participating artists receive a free festival t-shirt. Once complete, murals remain displayed on the lawn for several weeks.
After the festival, selected artworks will be displayed at Roosevelt Island’s Motorgate Atrium Gallery. All artwork will remain RIOC property and may be displayed on Roosevelt Island to beautify the community in the future.
