PHOTOS: Art to the Ave 2017 Kicks-Off In Style

The kick off to the month-long Art to the Avenue 2017 event benefited from crisp spring weather and a great turnout. The event, now in its 20th year, is a collaboration of local stores in the Greenwich Avenue area and local artists, made possible by the Greenwich Arts Council.

Following the kick-off event, the art will be displayed through May 29. Over 100 retailers in downtown Greenwich are participating this year, along with more than 120 artists.
