The Lower East Side Festival of the Arts returns for in-person events this weekend

The 26th annual Lower East Side Festival of the Arts takes place this weekend at the Theater for the New City, 155 First Ave. at 10th Street... and it will be in-person after last year's virtual proceedings. 

Expect to find a mix of theater, music, dance, comedy, poetry, film and fine arts indoors and out on Friday through Sunday. You can check out the extensive offerings at the Theater's website

The events are all free of charge. Theater officials have also noted the following about admission:
[S]adly, we cannot be as uninhibited and laissez-faire with our audience as usual. So, we must let you know that you WILL BE ASKED TO SHOW US YOUR VACCINATION CARD or a NEGATIVE COVID TEST NO MORE THAN FIVE DAYS OLD, IN ORDER TO BE ADMITTED! There will be masking and social distancing, and we will adhere to the most recent rules promulgated by the CDC, State and New York City.
In addition, TNC's Lobby Art Gallery is displaying the work of local artists...
Thanks to Lola Sáenz for the photos. Lola also has a work on display in the art show.

I have been a long time supporter of TNC, but their vaccination discrimination policy has put me and many of my friends OFF.
