Happening This Weekend - 8/10/2018

This weekend is  August's 2nd Saturday in Beacon, which means the galleries in town unveil new exhibits that (usually) last through the month.

This 2nd Saturday is big because 26 locations on Main Street join in, thanks to Windows on Main Street now in its 13th year. Windows on Main St. is the annual event that turns Main Street into an outdoor art gallery. A Little Beacon Blog is a proud media sponsor of this event, and you can find out more about Windows on Main Street in our article here

As your are out and about, take photos of storefront windows you see, and tag us @alittlebeacon! Light up Instagram with what you find!

Windows on Main Street (WOMS) Returns for its 13th Year Starting August 11, 2018

woms2018 MAIN.jpeg

Artists and Businesses Merge to Make Main Street the Gallery

On Second Saturday, August 11, Beacon’s 1.5 mile long Main Street becomes a 24-hour, 7-day a week gallery space for the next month until September 8, 2018, as site-specific art installations are revealed in 26 Main Street storefront windows in the public art exhibit, Windows on Main Street (WOMS). As you're walking around, do you notice that certain storefront windows are filled with something extra special?

“Artists are paired with local businesses, and together they create a site-specific work of art,” says WOMS 2018 director Diana Currie, who is also participating as an artist in a window this year (you may remember her “yarn bombing” work of Beacon’s iconic Dummy Light in 2015, which triggered a public response to the yarn cozi knitted around the Dummy Light for days after the initial setup). Now in its 13th year, WOMS is a project of BeaconArts, the organization dedicated to organizing, promoting and nurturing the city’s multi-faceted arts community.

windows_on_main_map_2018.png

“Windows on Main Street is a fantastic way for local artists - both newcomers and established - to really get more involved in our arts community, and in our community in general,” said Currie.

How to Find the Artists and Windows

A list of this year’s participants, locations, and artist statements can be found at www.windowsonmainstreet.com. Maps of the event are available around town at various locations, including Beacon’s Visitors Center, and participating businesses. You can read about each artist from the Windows on Main Street website when you click on their location. In fact, you should read about the installation "In Memory of Anthony Marra Jr." put on by his sister Catherine E. Marra in Mountain Tops.

The Windows on Main headquarters and “Tiny Windows” exhibit is located at Oak Vino Wine Bar, 389 Main St. Oak Vino and Windows on Main Street will host an opening celebration on August 11, starting at 6 pm. In addition to the “Tiny Windows" exhibit, there will be a live drawing/auction by artist Donna Mikkelsen, a DJ, and complimentary food. Windows on Main Street shirts and totes will also be available for purchase to benefit the project.

Funding Provided By...

This month-long public art event is a project of BeaconArts, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to foster and encourage the advancement of the City of Beacon as a center for arts and culture. This means that Windows on Main is supported BeaconArts' membership income, in addition to any fundraisers and sponsorships that the WOMS team organizes. BeaconArts' Ex-Officio and past president Kelly Ellenwood further explains: "It also means that BeaconArts will always support the event - both financially, and with deeper volunteer commitment."

Windows on Main Street 2018 was also made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a re-grant program of the New York State Council on the Arts (with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature) and administered by Arts Mid-Hudson. Sponsorships are also possible for businesses who want to directly sponsor the event. A Little Beacon Blog is a proud media sponsor!

Happening This Weekend 8/3/2018

Theme song of the week is "Africa" with the theme lyric being: "I bless the rains down in Africa" (and maybe you feel like this actress from Frozen and her hubby while singing it in your car).

Conversations between people have been going something like this:
"Looks like it's going to rain any minute!"
"Oh wait, no it's not. The sun is out, scorching me, let's go get Moo Moo's Ice Cream at the Chocolate Studio!"
Get in car, or hoof on foot and...
"Did we bring an umbrella? It's pouring! Quick, duck into Beacon Bath and Bubble. Oh look! Bath bombs!"

Moral of the story? Just get out there! Let's see what's going on in the neighborhood...

BeaconArts, Dutchess County Transit and the City of Beacon have joined together to transform this bus line into something hopefully everyone will hail when they need it, where they need it, for free. To make going up and down the mile of Beacon's Main Street and beyond to the train easier. We're working on an article to bring you more info. But until then, listen to this Broadway musician sing while taking a free ride on the bus.

Katie James, Inc.

For the latest Squarespace website designed by Katie James, Inc. for TEC Land Surveying, the design team totally repurposed the blogging tool available in Squarespace in order to showcase the many client projects TEC has completed in different specialty fields for their industry. Based on a special need from the client, Katie James, Inc. made each project dynamic so that a picture, link and project title automatically displays in the corresponding section of the website. For example, when the client adds a new completed project like "Bulls Head Road Bridge Replacement" to the Utility Mapping section, the project will be grouped automatically with other Utility Mapping projects and automatically update the page. It's a huge time-saver trick! Take a look at how it works.

Happening This Weekend 6/22/2018

Happy weekend! Don't you worry about a little drizzle - we know of plenty of places for you to duck inside and maybe even find some cute rain gear. Use our Shopping Guide to get acquainted with Beacon before you head out!

PS: Have you seen this cute street sign yet? It's a new one, designed to inspire people to keep walking - heading right down Tioronda, to find the new boutique Wares, or left toward the waterfall and such delights as The Chocolate Studio, which serves Moo Moo's ice cream, all the way around the bend near Fishkill Creek.
