Call for Artists – Yonkers Arts Weekend

Deadline April 15:

The 3rd annual Yonkers Art Weekend #YAW brought to you by The City of Yonkers will take place in the heart of the city May 13th – 15th 2016.

Our inaugural participation held inside 86 Main Street will be the central creative hub of the city during Yonkers Art Weekend. The City of Yonkers has seen over 200% growths in its second year and expecting another massive jump in attendance for 2016. ME Creative in collaboration with Madison Reality will provide shuttle services from Manhattan to 86 Main Street.


Inside the 26,000 sq/ft space we’ll host an immersive curated exhibition of 2D and 3D work. Installation artists and sculpture, strongly encouraged.

The space will be an open-air concept – therefore a complement to the raw nature of the industrial space.

50 Artists will be selected by Matthew Eck (practicing artist and MFA graduate).


Yonkers Arts Weekend is a celebration of the thriving and diverse arts community in the City of Yonkers. On Friday, May 13th, Saturday, May 14th and Sunday, May 15th, more than 300 local, regional and international artists, artisans, painters, fashion designers, photographers, sculptors, craftsmen, musicians, filmmakers, new media specialists, and other artists will converge on Yonkers to showcase their work at Yonkers Arts Weekend.
