Celebration of the Arts 

Setting Sun will play at Celebration of the Arts in New Paltz.
  • Setting Sun will play at Celebration of the Arts in New Paltz.
Now in its fourth year, the Celebration of the Arts (COTA) is a multi-day event that honors art and community in New Paltz. COTA has paired artists with certain shops to create site-specific installations in their display windows that remain halfway through this month. Thursday brings Broad’s Regional Arm Wrestling League (BRAWL), who tear it up at the Water Street Market to raise funds for local women’s charities. Friday features the sounds of Setting Sun and Los Doggies at Snug Harbor to support COTA’s new Artists Stipend Fund, made available for artists to realize next year’s projects. The full-day event on Saturday, October 8, includes the poetry and fiction of local favorites Jan Schmidt, Phillip Levine, Larry Carr, Alice Andrews, and Susannah Appelbaum, a variety of free sample dance classes including belly dance, tango, and choreography, and children’s activities that include book crafting, mural painting, and Teddy Bear Story Time. Large scale installations, live music featuring The Trapps and the Eastern European stylings of Szélrózsa, as well as dancers and performers including the School of Kuchipudi Classical Dance, all make up this explosion of culture this year. Thursday-Saturday, October 6-8. (845) 255-2713; www.celebrationofthearts.net.
