This event features Bronx painters, sculptors and other visual artists creating their work outdoors, affording visitors the opportunity to watch as the works of art evolve and to learn more about the art-making processes of individual artists.

Conceived of by the Bronx Artists Collective and implemented in partnership with the Andrew Freedman Home, the “Garden of Artists” is designed to enhance awareness of the visual arts community in the Bronx, to demystify the creation of art and to encourage visitors of all ages to participate in art making.

“Creation Stations” will be set up around the lawn with art supplies available for both children and adults to try out painting or other art forms. Art supplies have been donated by Jerry’s Artarama. There will be music, children’s activities and a free gift for the first 50 visitors.

The Garden of Artists rain date is Sunday September 28th, 11AM – 4PM. For further information, please call: 718-884-2922.
