A Peek of Past Fall For Arts Festivals

On Saturday, September 28, NYC Ferry’s Astoria Route will cruise you to the Roosevelt Island Operating Corporation (RIOC)  annual Fall for Arts Festival on Roosevelt Island.

This community event has a tradition of celebrating creativity and the changing seasons. It combines performance and traditional arts through the creation of free-standing murals during the Festival. This year, our theme is “EarthLove: Protect, Renew, Grow”. Hope to see you there! 

The three locations on Roosevelt Island:

    • Southpoint Park
    • FDR Four Freedoms State Park
    • The lawn south of Rivercross (501 Main St.).

Hands-on arts and crafts workshops, amusements, and live music will also be featured throughout the say. Participation in this event is free; basic paints, brushes, and a primed surface are provided! All participating artists will also receive a free festival t-shirt. Once complete, murals will remain displayed on the lawn for several weeks.

After the Festival: Selected artworks will be displayed at Roosevelt Island’s Motorgate Atrium Gallery starting in April 2020. All artwork will remain the RIOC property and may be displayed on Roosevelt Island to beautify the community in the future.
