HOWL 2013: Art Around the Park Saturday 6/1 & Sunday 6/2

June 1, 2013

Art Around the Park 2013

A live action, weekend-long event connecting Festivalgoers with more than 140 artists of all ages as they turn an 8 foot high, 900 foot long blank “canvas” encircling the exterior of Tompkins Square Park into an explosion of color and creativity. Go ahead, schmooze!

Among the multitude of wonderful artists participating this year, we can only mention in any ‘depth’ but a few!

Antonio “Chico” Garcia

There is, of course, the world-reknown CHICO, a local guy from the LES who has parlayed his incomparable artistic talent into a tri-coastal and international career. He is a legend! AND an Art Around the Park institution!

Native New yorker, David Greene, is a professional artist living and working in his Manhattan studio for the past twenty five years.

David’s dramatically oversized 8 foot square celebrity portraits have always been the highlight of ART AROUND THE PARK.  (AND David’s birthday IS Sunday, June 2nd!)
