Adding to the fun this year artist Charles Fazzino has created an ArtsFest Scavenger Hunt: Pick up a free card at one of 18 venues, and add stickers from each venue you visit. Once you’ve collected 10 you are eligible to win an original 3-D limited edition work of art by Charles Fazzino: Simply fill in your name and address and leave the stamped card in a specially marked box at one of the 18 participating venues. The winner will be notified at the conclusion of ArtsFest.
Organized by the New Rochelle Council on the Arts, ArtsFest highlights the variety of arts and arts venues in New Rochelle and Pelham, with exhibits, programs and family-friendly activities that spotlight the community’s rich cultural and artistic diversity. Again this year a free “Culture Trolley” will provide “hop on – hop off” transportation to the activities taking place in public and private cultural spaces.
