Weekly Rec: Be Inspired!

Guest Rec by Holly Caster

The 8th annual Inspired! is April 21st ! This Rivertown Film fast-paced fundraising event celebrates the art of creation. It’s also a community get-together, with hors d’oeuvres, refreshments, desserts, plus a silent auction, a raffle, and a chance to mingle with neighbors, friends, soon-to-be friends, and the artists themselves.
Inspired = of extraordinary quality, as if arising from some external creative impulse

What is Inspired?

At the Nyack Center, 15 local artists will take their turn presenting 10 slides for 20 seconds each, sharing a glimpse into their minds and creative process and sources of inspiration.

Before and after the presentations, attendees can enjoy food, wine, and talk.
Tickets to this unique, entertaining, and enlightening evening are $35 for general admission and $25 for Rivertown Film members, and are sure to go quickly.

Purchase tickets online at today.
