|The Artists' Loft with Art Bennett|
Event Type: Adult - Music and Dance|
Age Group(s): Adults, Teens
Start Time: 6:00 PM
End Time: 8:00 PM
On the last Wednesday of each month from February through September, join Art Bennett and other guest teaching artists in the library’s café space from 6pm-8pm for evenings of fun, creativity, and community.
Musicians are welcome every month, with all musical skill levels welcome. Bring your instrument and any tunes you want to work on, or just bring your ears to relax and listen. Art likes to run a workshop-style event, where you get a chance to see how musicians who have never played before work together to create! An electric piano and a PA will be available.
A few times through the year, guest teaching artists will come and run workshops focused on visual arts, dance, and/or hip-hop in parallel to Art’s music workshop. These sessions are modeled after musician and educator Art Bennett's experience in the 1970s Loft Jazz scene in NYC, where artists of all mediums collaborated and created together. The Artists' Loft will create a place for artists of all mediums to come together in downtown White Plains.
This project is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by ArtsWestchester.
