The Rockland County-based arts center kicks of its 2018-2019 season with a mellow shindig taking place at the Garner Historic District…
…and, they’re inviting you to join them. Situated with the three adjoining alleyway and warehouse spaces that make up the 19th-century historic district, the Brick Alley Block Party will offer a low-key night of art installations, live music, food, and beer. The festivities start at 6:30pm on Saturday, September 22 and wrap up at 11:30pm. Tickets are $12 in advance, and $15 at the door. Senior, student, military, GARNER Arts Center member, and tenant ticket-buyers get 10% off admission.
Interdisciplinary artist Charles Dennis will bring “Avant-Garde-Arama” to the Block Party. Channeling the spirit of the legendary 1980s East Village’s performance art series, “Avant-Garde-Arama” will be in Rockland County for the Block Party only, so don’t miss out on this cutting-edge performance.
The party will also feature short works of dance, film, music, performance art, and poetry occurring in different locations throughout the evening.
Dancing Under the Stars
Don’t go home early. Stay for the late-night DJ set courtesy DJ Papi Blaze in Brick Alley. While you’re already staying up too late, might as well have some beer. Industrial Arts Brewing Company provides the grown-up beverages, so plan to dance the night away in the adjoining alleyways and warehouses of a 19th-century factory-turned-maker village.
