The Greenwich Arts Council
May 7 - 29, 2015
Whoever said that art and commerce don’t mix was clearly mistaken. Since 1998 Art to the Avenue had been doing just that. Each May, with the overwhelming support of the Greenwich business community, the Arts Council turns Greenwich Avenue into a strolling gallery. One of the largest and most exciting festivals ever organized, the Opening is set for Thursday, May 7, from 5:30-8pm. The evening launches a truly spectacular show. Musicians and street performers fill the street entertaining strollers. Most stores host receptions for the hundreds of visitors who attend to preview the work of over 120 artists. The art selected by the retailers remains in place through Memorial Day, so there is ample time for viewers to experience the “gallery” that downtown Greenwich becomes. All the art on display is for sale, and a 30% tax deduction for the purchaser benefits GAC. A complete Map/Guide is published listing all participants, so that individual shops, artists and locations are easy to locate.
