Roosevelt Island Fall For Arts Festival October 5, A Mystical Island - Call For Artists To Paint Outdoor Murals At Southpoint Park
Roosevelt Island's 2013 Fall For Arts Festival is coming up soon.
Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) President Charlene Indelciato reports:
The date is set for our annual Fall for the Arts Festival. In partnership with Gallery RIVAA, RIOC will be hosting the Festival on October 5th at Southpoint Park and on the lawn south of Rivercross. There will be music, art, food and fun for all!RIOC has put out a call for artists to show their works.
I understand that the painting of large outdoor murals is the Festival’s most loved tradition. I look forward to viewing them both in the Park and later at the Motorgate Gallery.
The theme for this year's event is "A Mystical Island." It is free to participate - paint and brushes are provided!
We invite you to submit a sketch of your design or any inquiries to Anna.Rankin@rioc.ny.gov along with a title and short description. The deadline for sketches is September 21, 2013....
According to Arthash, RIOC is seeking:
... several artists to each paint a 6 ft x 8 ft mural outdoors at Southpoint Park during the 2013 Fall for Arts Festival. Every year, the Fall for Arts Festival inspires and engages Roosevelt Island's creative community with music, displays of art and interactive workshops. One of the festival's most-loved traditions is the painting of large outdoor murals - a large and enthusiastic audience comes out each year to watch these paintings take shape. After the festival concludes, the murals are left on display in the park for a short time, then moved into the Island's Motorgate Gallery for display through late 2014.More info on 2013 Roosevelt Island Fall For Arts Festival here and scenes from 2012 Fall For Arts
