Each Sunday, the Schenectady Green Market will feature an artist or arts activity as part of the New York State Council on the Arts funded series “Art in Bloom.” The program aims to foster participation in the arts and to add to a sense of community. Art in Bloom will run from May 21 through Oct. 8 at the Schenectady Greenmarket, which takes place every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. outside City Hall. There will not be an Art in Bloom program on July 2 or on any Sunday that has an extreme heat advisory in effect.
On Sunday, August 27th, New York Folklore is the sponsor for the featured artists – Veena and Devesh Chandra performing North Indian music on sitar and tabla. Their performance serves as a kick-off for a year-long program of Indian music, dance, and other forms of art from the Indian diaspora that is funded through an Our Town Place-Making grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. Please contact New York Folklore for further information.
