The Arts Change the Face of White Plains

This fall, developers and artists team up with ArtsWestchester to bring art to the streets of downtown White Plains. Mural by mural, they are changing the face of the City, bringing color and excitement to walls that may otherwise have gone unnoticed. It all comes together during Serious Fun Arts Fest, a 5-day festival on October 12-16, organized by ArtsWestchester and sponsored by Montefiore Einstein, when art takes over White Plains with live music, pop-up dance performances, an art fair, gallery events, an outdoor sculpture exhibition, a concert celebration with on-the-rise Brooklyn band Sammy Rae & the Friends, and more.  Take a look at some of the upcoming artworks:
