First Friday January Festival Postponed

First Friday JanuaryUpdated January 3, 2014 at 2:43p

Tonight’s First Friday event from the Nyack Art Collective has been postponed because of the extreme winter weather left behind by storm Hercules. Tonight’s predicted temps are supposed to be near zero which make getting around possibly unsafe and definitely un-fun. The date for the rescheduled wine crawl will be announced next week.

You need to wine crawl before you walk to the beat for January’s  First Friday.  Step one: obtain your souvenir Nyack Art Collective cup that entitles you to some fine wine as you stroll through downtown Nyack to view the fine art. Step two: move your feet to the percussive rhythms of the Walk to the Beat project as they transform Casa de Sol into the perfect after-art party.

Nyack Art Collective souvenir wine cups are available for $5 at participating venues on Friday, January 3 from 5 -8p. Your cup gets you a glass of wine when you visit each venue. Bring your ID.

Walk to the Beat, the organization of dancers and percussionist that staged a village-wide music and movement celebration this summer is bringing the band Making Music Dance to Casa de Sol at 104 Main Street at 8:30p. The band combines the tracne-like drive of the African balafon, the ethereal phrasing of the electric violin and the percussive stylings of the guitar.

Here’s a complete guide to Nyack Art Collective‘s monthly cultural festival.
