Art Around Town is an initiative of the Yorktown Small Business Association and the Westchester Independent Business Alliance to stimulate the economy of small businesses, non-profits and artists of all kinds – both here in Yorktown as well as the rest of Westchester.
Bob Giordano is the YSBA and WIBA Founder/President. He's also the visionary who created and implemented the Art Around Town initiative. Both Lesley Jacobson and Lauren Sanders now run the program with an incredible team of volunteers we will introduce to you soon!
We find talent, book events, plan the events and then promote them. We design logos, graphics, websites and interiors. We are a full-service operation here!
We are sponsored by the incredible town of Yorktown and have public spaces available to us. We have the support of our local businesses that are opening their doors to host events.
We have a number of rotating events already in motion. Check out our events page for dates!
We want to see Yorktown thrive. That means businesses busier than ever and residents having the chance to explore the arts in their own town.
We also are passionate about cultivating artists and giving them the opportunity to showcase their work. We work with artists that have never shown their work to anyone or have never performed in front of an audience as well as experienced professionals who can mentor the newcomers.
