Staten Island Arts

This recent video by BRICbrooklyn features Executive Director Elizabeth Bennett & Deputy Director Gena Mimozo traversing a few spots around the North Shore that showcase how vibrant and unique Staten Island’s culture can be.

Staten Island’s art community is bustling all year round, but something about the summer brings out the creativity in all of us. This year, there are several art exhibits worth checking out. Whether you’re into photography, film, paintings, or even performance art, these events will definitely catch your eye. Area

Memorial Day weekend 2017 is upon us, and for those of you who are staying local this holiday weekend, we’ve got a few Staten Island events that you’ve got to check out!

For the past year or so, local comics Manny Rondon and Joon Chung have been producing a monthly (sometimes bi-monthly) comedy showcase from the SI Arts Culture Lounge in the SI Ferry Terminal.

Check out the group’s latest Facebook video, a trailer for “You, Me, & Food” a film that you’ll surely be clamoring (and vomiting) for!

This Saturday night; art, live performance, music, and local sellers will converge on the grounds of the Atlantic Salt Company for this year’s LUMEN festival.

This past weekend Kristin had the pleasure of attending “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” in High Rock Park. The show was directed by Frank Williams (who you might recognize from Staten Island’s premier jug band, the Wahoo Skiffle Crazies) and had an ensemble cast of highly talented actors and musicians.

It’s coming, and it’s going to change New York City forever. When Tourists make their way to Staten Island on their trip past Lady Liberty, they’ll no longer make a u-turn in the St. George ferry terminal and head back to Manhattan

The following is the second in a series of articles regarding the Historic Tappen Park Community Partnership and their project, “Illuminate Stapleton”, winner of the NYC Neighborhood Challenge Innovation grant competition from Staten Island.

Next Tuesday, July 28th, Staten Island Arts will be hosting their Mid-Summer Meet and Greet from 7-10pm at Flagship Brewery. At the event, the organization promises a chance to chance to “meet & greet” our new Executive Director Christopher Hellstrom, our Board of Directors, and staff. We recently featured Flagship Brewery as one of the best places to grab a craft beer on Staten Island.
