Art by the Ferry transforms St. George into a multi faceted festival spotlighting Staten Island’s diverse and talented Arts community.

 

The SI Ferry is the third largest tourist attraction in New York. The platform just outside the terminal heading toward the 9/11 Memorial becomes a stage for well known local and regional music groups. SI Creative Community, produces the festival and also sponsors and promotes shows at two of their galleries that are one block from the ferry terminal: Art at Bay, 70 Bay St. and the Gallery at 60 Bay, 60 Bay St. These galleries will show mostly local artists during the festival. One or both of the galleries continues to show local art, play music and do readings each month throughout the year. Local eateries, coffee houses such as Everything Goes Cafe and small businesses also promote art in their windows as well as inside their venues during the festival. Art by the Ferry features gallery exhibits, outdoor performances of music, dance, perfomance art and childrens workshops. There is something for everyone.

 

The hard work it takes to organize a festival that features over 100 artists, 30 bands and various performers is done by volunteers who are members of the Staten Island Creative Community and some of their friends and partners.
