YONKERS, N.Y. -- Mayor Mike Spano announced the city will host the first Yonkers Arts Weekend on Saturday, May 3, and Sunday, May 4.
More than 150 local, regional and international artists, painters, photographers, sculptors and musicians will converge on Yonkers to showcase their work at Untermyer Gardens, YoHo Artist Studios, The Hudson River Museum and in the Downtown Waterfront District.
“Yonkers is quickly gaining notoriety as a destination city for artists to live, work and exhibit,” Spano said in a statement. “From newcomers such as Daniel Wolf, Maya Lin and David Hammons to the artistic institutions that built Yonkers’ arts community, Yonkers has a great story to tell -- and we’re going to tell it at Yonkers Arts Weekend.”
The city is providing free bus transportation that will shuttle visitors to each Yonkers Arts Weekend venue.
