TARRYTOWN, N.Y. – An opening reception for an art display interpreting the Tappan Zee Bridge and marking the construction of the New NY Bridge will be held on Friday, Sept. 12, at 6 p.m. at the Community Outreach Center, at 2 N. Broadway, Tarrytown.
The art was created for the New York State Thruway Authority’s 2014 Bridge Art Show, a juried exhibition where local painters, sculptors and photographers showcased their interpretations of the new bridge design or the existing Tappan Zee Bridge.
The 85 works will be on display until Nov. 1.
“We are delighted that the New NY Bridge team developed this exhibition, which gives the public the opportunity to see the bridge through the eyes of creative artists," said Janet Langsam, chief executive officer of ArtsWestchester.
"The Tappan Zee is the gateway to the Hudson Valley region, which is home to thousands of artists, and their numbers are growing rapidly. The exhibition builds greater public awareness of the vibrant creative life of communities north of New York City.”
The 2014 Bridge Art Show is meant to build connections between communities on either side of the river and throughout the Hudson Valley.
Westchester County submissions will be on display in Rockland County and Rockland submissions will be featured in Westchester.
Residents and local art lovers are encouraged to visit both locations. The Rockland Community Outreach Center is at 142 Main St., Nyack, N.Y.
