The Lark Street Business Improvement District is proud to present Art on Lark 2008 on Saturday June 21st from 10 am to 5 pm. For the first time ever, the Lark Street BID will be closing the street and moving the artists off the sidewalk and onto Lark Street! This event will be bigger than ever with more artists, more musicians, dance performances, theatre performances, one-day installations, and many more special events that will showcase Lark Street as Albany's Arts District.
Art on Lark is a day to celebrate the vibrant and exciting arts scene that Albany has. While you walk down the sidewalks, enjoy the city's biggest art exhibit while listening to this region's up & coming musicians and watching a daring new dance performance. Lark Street itself will be transformed into a giant visual and performing arts center for the day.
For kids of all ages, the Creative Chaos area will once again be offering a hands-on experience for everyone. The Upstate Artists Guild will once again be hosting the Peoples Choice Show in the gallery at 247 Lark Street. The UAG will also be running the Sidewalk Chalk Contest.
Contact the Lark Street BID for sponsorship and event information.
