Art to the Ave will kick off with opening night on Thursday, May 3, from 5:30 to 8:00pm.

The event, which runs through May 27, is a collaboration of local stores in the Greenwich Avenue area and local artists, and is possible by the Greenwich Arts Council.

Each May since 1998, with the overwhelming support of the Greenwich business community, the Greenwich Arts Council turns Greenwich Avenue into a strolling gallery.

Opening night evening launches a truly spectacular show. Musicians and street performers fill the street entertaining strollers.

Most stores host receptions for the hundreds of visitors who attend to preview the work of over 120 artists.

The art selected by the retailers remains in place through Memorial Day, so there is ample time for viewers to experience the “gallery” that downtown Greenwich becomes.

All the art on display is for sale, and a 30% tax deduction for the purchaser benefits GAC.

Go to the Greenwich Arts Council site for details.
