Local artist Geoff Feder will be showing his intriguing 60 Needles, a collection of fishing lure sculptures at the 2nd Nature Skate Park in Peekskill, this Friday night, December 5th, from 7-9 pm.
And yes, there will be skateboarding going on!
Bring your board! Bring your art history degree! Is skateboarding an art? Can art be a skateboard? Come and decide for yourself.
Don’t leave empty handed — you can buy a board! They have a full skate shop there, and Mr. Feder has painted 20 boards with his iconic design and they’re for sale!
You can find lots of information on the web, but here is a handy roundup from The Patch:
Keep your eye out for the GO Peekskill Shuttle that will be debuting soon. Round trips from the train station to some of Peekskill’s finest retailers. GO Peekskill is provided and funded by some of Peekskill’s small business such as Dylan’s Wine Cellar, The Hudson Room, Peekskill Coffee House, Birdsall House and The Quiet Man Public House Pub.
(from Dylan’s Wine Cellar FB page).
Free for all ages. Check it out at Jacob Burns Film center.
This weekend. October 25th.
Get ready—this is big. Here’s the skinny. There’s a swing dance in Peekskill, and it’s all happening at Embark on Saturday, November 8. What’s on the menu? Dig.
7-8 p.m.: NYC dance maestro Bill Kline gives a free lesson in basic swing/lindy hop for everyone at the party—no partner needed. Or bring a friend, a sweetie, a wandering cadet, or a brand-new pal.
8 p.m. to midnight: Dance your head off. The music’s amazing. The dance will make you grin, bounce, shake your moneymaker, and maybe even sing. (It’s damn good exercise, incidentally.)
All night: Eat light refreshments. Drink a little something. Chat up your cadet. Get your mom to tell you stories about sock hops and Nat King Cole. Swing and sway, jump and jive, hoot and holler. You’re going to want to. And you will.
$15 cover. $10 for students. Embark is at 925 South Street in downtown Peekskill. Click here for a Google Map. Click here to get inspired. (Don’t worry, no one will be throwing anyone. Thrilling, yeas, but not throwing.) Click your ruby heels on the two and the four. See you on the dance floor!
