A wide selection of juried paintings, photography, sculptures, installations, and arts and crafts in all it's disciplines will be on view! The art scholar and novice alike will delight in finding art along the trails, by the shore and on the open green of the park, in the large tent as well as the Conference House. Take a journey across centuries while touring through this historic home.

There will be a craft tent/area to visit, including a wide array of craft,­ wearable art, jewelry, pottery, quilting, and home fashions to name a few ­ to see and purchase!

Sample the cuisine of our area's fine restaurants at our food court. Everything from barbecue to pastries will be available to purchase.

For those of you who fancy a test of skill, there will be a miniature golf course which has been designed by a native Staten Island artist. This is not just ordinary mini golf, but the artistic expression of the artist's interpretation of the game!
