ArtsWestchester’s Folk Arts Program began in 1996, documenting a vital work tradition in the region: the work of past and contemporary stonemasons. Since then, the program has presented at least half a dozen public programs each year, documenting and highlighting the diverse cultures of Westchester, collaborating with partner organizations throughout the county and offering promotional and cultural development services to artists, community groups and cultural organizations seeking to present folk arts in their own venues. Upcoming events will be listed on this page. Check back for updates. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 914-428-4220 x 329.
