The 1996 Annual Armonk Outdoor Art Show

The 1996 Annual Armonk Outdoor Art Show

Usage conditions apply
This poster advertised an outdoor art show in Armonk, New York, in 1996. Held annually since 1961, the volunteer-run art show raises funds for the Friends of the North Castle Library, a volunteer group supporting the town library. The library has branches in Armonk and North White Plains, two sections of the town of North Castle.
Over time, the art show has grown in professionalism and reputation as a result of the skills, connections, and resources members of the community have brought to it. In its early years, it largely featured local artists. More recently, the show has attracted artists from around the United States and some from abroad, and it has gained a national reputation. A paid executive director has helped to manage the show since the late 2010s. The art show is an example of fundraising and volunteering in an affluent community with ample resources to support the professionalization and publicization of an annual fundraiser.
