Our celebration of arts and artists in the Surel Mitchell Live-Work-Create District kicks off for 2023 in April!
Sponsored by the Riverside Hotel, The Common Well, Hannah Ball, and Casino Beach, these family-friendly evenings give you a chance to meet Garden City’s artists in their studios and work spaces. Plus, you’ll find hands-on art activities at artKids tables and keep an eye out for roving and pop-up artists and performances throughout the night.
This year, the Riverside Hotel will be debuting mini murals along the Greenbelt fence behind the hotel. They are also hosting a scavenger hunt where people search for certain items in the art. They will choose someone out of the people who complete the hunt to win a staycation at the hotel!
We have new venues including Barbarian Brewing, The Common Well, and the Flamingo House (you can’t miss it…).
Surel’s Place is partnering with The Backyard Artists to feature multiple artists and genres. At Surel’s Place look for an installation by Roxy Albig and an exhibit and live art by Jacey Adams and Roman Bolen. Next door to Surel’s Place, in the new “Flamingo House” (you’ll understand the name once you see it!) you’ll find installations by OJ Johnson and Clara Geise along with artwork by Kim Porter. Plus another installation by Megan White at Urban Gallery on 34th Street.
Also new for 2023: we have eliminated the guest artist fee! We can set you up with a location to show your work, all you need to do is apply!
