Art on Bay

You might have heard that we’re hosting our third This Way on Bay this Thursday afternoon at Santander Bank in Stapleton. One of the highlights of that event will be the presence of four talented Staten Island artists who we’d like to introduce you to here.

Staten Island’s indie superstar Ingrid Michaelson takes a stab at Radiohead’s classic on The Nerdist Podcast.

Not a single day goes by that one is not impressed by the vast array of talent which is so rampant in Staten Island and specifically on the North Shore. Cultural organizations such as the ones listed here add culture and education to our community and should never be overlooked.

On Friday, May 1st, walk leader Claudia Toback is taking one of MAS NYC’s free guided Jane’s Walks in Stapleton. The event, called “The past and future for Stapleton” will take New Yorkers on a tour of the historic Stapleton, and shine a light into what the future holds for the Staten Island community.

Filmmaker, Don Arangio, is quickly becoming the viral sensation of Staten Island’s North Shore. After the runaway success of his quirky short film “10am” last month, Arangio recently started making rounds on the web again, this time for a photograph of a rainbow shining on the Staten Island Ferry.

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of announcing in one of my posts that there is an event taking place in Stapleton as the result of a grant which was awarded this year to the Historic Tappen Park Community Partnership (HTPCP) by NYC in order to unify Stapleton. A meeting concerning this was held on March 25th and guidelines were distributed regarding the submission process for artists to participate.
