Mark your calendars for the Annual Tivoli Street Painting Festival: October 1, 2011. The Village of Tivoli seeks artists of all ages and backgrounds for the 11th consecutive year since 2001. Participants “paint” 8’x8’ squares along Broadway through town. Register (either that day or through pre-registration) and receive free boxes of pastels, choose a square (first come, first choice), and create a street painting. Children must be attended by an adult, but no other restrictions apply. Live music keeps the mood lively. This project is made possible in part through a grant from the Dutchess County Arts Council, administrator of public funds through the New York State Council on the Arts’ Decentralization Program.
