First Fridays expanded through fall


Attendees are also invited to visit the newly-opened Upstart Art Mart on Broadway.

“We want to try to conduct the flow of traffic from the north corridor to the Art Mart information booth,” D’Arcy said. In case of inclement weather, the Granada Theater will be open.

“We’re very focused on building downtown into a dining, entertainment center. We think we have a good art culture in Mt. Vernon, feeding off the various events at Cedarhurst. We want to expand that base to make Mt. Vernon an art mecca. There are great restaurants in downtown, and as time goes on, we’ll have additional art community buildings. We want to help forward that whole movement and get people outside, enjoying the city and what we have to offer,” she concluded.
