Art On Lark

The Lark Street Business Improvement District is proud to present the 15th Annual Art on Lark 2011 on Saturday, June 11th from 10 am to 5 pm. Art on Lark is Albany’s Premier Arts Festival drawing over 25,000 attendees in 2009 and named “Best Arts Event” in the  Times Union Readers Poll in 2009 and 2010. It is the 2nd largest street festival in upstate New York, second only to LarkFEST! This event will host hundreds of artists, musicians, dance and theatre performances, one-day installations, and many more special events that will showcase Lark Street as Albany's Arts District.

New for 2011
Several local Arts Organizations will be contributing to the festivities at Art on Lark 2011 including the addition of an Art Mecca presented by the Marketplace Gallery and Living Walls on Hudson Avenue between Lark and Willett. Come and Watch several artists create an enormous “living walls” mural right in front of your eyes and check out booths representing a number of New York City Galleries and Artists. Additionally, the buildings formerly occupied by Planned Parenthood will be transformed into a one-day “Pop-Up Gallery” packed with Art and Artists. The Pop-Up Gallery is being presented in conjunction with Albany Underground Artists co-founder Chip Fasciana. This space will also play host to the Youth FX Film series by the Grand Street Community Arts Youth Film program with several showings throughout the day. 

We are proud to partner with WEXT 97.7 FM for the 2nd year at Art on Lark 2011!
