Once again this year, the Greenwich Arts Council has organized Art to the Avenue, which is now in its' nineteenth year! This event is held to show that art and commerce do mix, and since 1998 this stellar event has been doing just that!

This years event promises to be one of the most exciting festivals ever organized. The opening is set for Thursday, May 5, from 5:30-8 p.m. The evening launches a truly spectacular show with musicians and street performers filling the street along with entertaining strollers.
On May 5, most stores host receptions for the hundreds of visitors who attend this event 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 Greenwich Arts Council.
