The New Rochelle Business Improvement District (BID) is an important City partner for promoting downtown commerce and organizing cultural events that attract people to our central business district. And the BID is at it again with their second Windows on Art project, unfolding over the next two months at 306 Huguenot Street opposite Trinity Church.
New Rochelle High School art teachers Alexandra Rutsch Brock and Scott Seaboldt are creating dueling arts installations just inside 306 Huguenot’s substantial windows. You’re invited to watch them work side by side through April every Wednesday from 3:00 to 6:00pm, or view their works in progress, day or night, the next time you’re downtown.
The BID’s Windows on Art Program builds on a recent City law meant to encourage downtown property owners with vacant storefronts to decorate their windows and showcase local artists. Last year’s “Windows on Art — 249” is still on view at 249 North Avenue.
