Happy Second Saturday, people of Beacon! Dive into autumn this weekend, via spooky celebration or life-affirming art. We've got it all covered for you!
Some highlights: In addition to the slate of Beacon's art gallery openings (a harvest for which we are ever-thankful), a handful of literary/art collaborations are happening today: A photobook pop-up on East Main, a painting-poetry jam in Beacon's newest storefront, and an author/illustrator reading at good ol' Binnacle. Also, a fundraiser for Mid Hudson Animal Aid at the Howland Public Library features art from Beaconites. Community Free Day at Dia:Beacon means extra tours and programs, not least of which is end-of-day beer from the fine folks at 2 Way Brewing. In case you haven't seen it yet, swim quickly to Beacon Institute for Rivers and Estuaries for the waning days of their historic photo exhibit.
