Artpark: It begins ...by jmaloni
While the Avett Brothers technically kicked off Artpark's 40th anniversary on May 24, many will consider the upcoming week as the official start of the summer season.
First, Artpark & Company will celebrate four decades of artistic excellence at tonight's gala. The event will include a high-end raffle and live music from The Bobby Militello Quartet, Buffalo native Ashlee Amoia, and Frankie Scinta.
Then, "Tuesday in the Park" begins its 12-week run with famed '80s musician Billy Idol on June 4. Tickets to watch the sneering punk rocker are on sale now.
Finally, the third annual family-friendly Fairy House Festival returns to the park grounds June 9.
