Happening This Weekend 7/13/2018

Enjoy the weekend of walking around Beacon!

This weekend is Second Saturday, and there is plenty of accessible art for you to walk to and participate in. From a live art performance on 9D (aka Wolcott aka the busy road near Bank Square) to the old Beacon High School, as Ethan Cohen's KuBe comes to life on Verplanck Avenue.

Get your sunscreen and walking hat (and superdope shades from Luxe Optique), and tag us in your photos as you explore!
Sponsored by Antalek & Moore for car insurance.

Beacon's Second Saturday is happening! The galleries are ready to share their art with you, so see A Little Beacon Blog's full walking tour Second Saturday Art Gallery Guide to see which art is in each gallery. We even include events when nontraditional galleries, like churches or shops, dedicate their walls to an artist, so learn here about who is where!
