ArtsBash is a Westchester foodie’s dream. Guests have the privilege of tasting exquisite signature dishes and cocktails from 30 of the county’s most revered restaurants as they partake in the night’s activities. ArtsBash’s 2012 Culinary Chairs John Crabtree (Crabtree’s Kittle House) and Anthony Goncalves (42 The Restaurant) will be present to greet those sampling the fine wine and the wonderful assortment of “Boardwalk Bites”-themed plates. A champagne and spirits lounge on the 9th floor will provide a wonderful accent to the event. A list of the growing number of participating restaurants can be seen below.

Against the backdrop of food and art, guests will be entertained by musicians, cocktails, and the company of fellow art lovers. They are encouraged to enter for the chance to win prizes and relax with a complimentary massage. They can also imagine themselves cruising in the brand new Mercedes-Benz convertible displayed outside, satisfy their sweet tooth with delicious desserts and take a picture with our Elton John and Katy Perry look-alikes!

Fabulous Art is at the core of ArtsBash. Art lovers will revel in the wide array of artistic talents made available to ArtsBash guests. The event will mark the last weekend to explore our current exhibition, featuring works from 20 local sculptors whose exciting and personal work is displayed in Sculpture: On and Off the Wall.

Guests can also meet the artists who create in our artist studios. Resident artists throughout our historic landmark building open their studio doors for ArtsBash goers to view their works in progress as painters, sculptors and fashion designers.

A list of participating Sculpture and Open Studios artists can be seen below.

This year’s ArtsBash 2012 will be followed by Family ArtsBash on May 19, a FREE day of fun for the whole family that includes children’s workshops, activities, treats and prizes.
