Hard Return: 9 Experiments for this Moment

Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase
February 1- May 7

For the next few months, nine artists will be participating in a unique live performance art exhibition at the Neuberger Museum. Each artist will have a week dedicated to them and their creations, which will pose fundamental questions about art and life. Learn more about the participating artists and their work here.

The Garrison Art Center Open House

The Garrison Art Center, Garrison
February 3, 3:30 p.m.- 5:30 p.m.

This is your chance to view the facility and learn about the classes held at The Garrison Art Center. The Center is holding an open house for interested students and community members to see first-hand the printmaking studio, drawing studio, and pottery studio in action. Chat with the faculty about upcoming classes and their summer programs for kids.

BYOB Pottery Night

Westchester Putnam Pottery, Jefferson Valley
February 3, 5-9 p.m.

Grab your friends and a bottle of wine, and spend an evening crafting a ceramic or glass piece at Westchester Putnam Pottery. The space offers a BYOB craft session which allows you to sit back, relax, and let your artistic side out. Artists will need to make an appointment and can bring snacks and refreshments along with them.

Hudson River EagleFest

Teatown, Ossining
February 4

Teatown will be holding its 19th annual EagleFest this weekend to celebrate one spectacular Westchester resident: the bald eagle. This will be the first in-person festival after being held virtually for the past two years. Purchase your tickets online to watch a live bird-of-prey show, numerous demonstrations, and educational displays at this year’s event. There will also be arts and crafts for kids, food trucks, and a bird spotting walk.

Llama Llama Live

Tarrytown Music Hall, Tarrytown
February 4, 2 p.m.

Llama Llama Red Pajama, the children’s tale of bedtime drama, is a fan favorite. Since its release in 2005, the catchy bedtime picture book has been a part of children’s bedtime routines across the country. In early 2018 the book was adapted into a Netflix animated series. Now, with the help of the Bay Area Children’s Theatre, the story of baby llama will be hitting the stage in a musical. Join the Theatre company as they sing catchy tunes written by award-winning playwright-composer-lyricist, Austin Zumbro.

*Make sure to call ahead for the latest information on COVID-19 cancelations and protocols at any venue.
