Grateful Dead Meet-Up
Join Dead Heads in your neighborhood - and around the world - when Trafalgar Releasing and Rhino Entertainment celebrate the 9th Annual Grateful Dead Meet-Up at the Movies. This can't-miss event - the first to go global - features the previously unreleased complete June 17, 1991 concert from Giants Stadium. Widely considered one of the greatest shows of the band's final decade of performing, June 17, 1991 also sounds unlike any Dead show you've ever heard as it was one of only two recorded on 48-track. Mixed by Jeffrey Norman in glorious surround sound with video from the multi-camera live edit, this will be the first time the Bruce Hornsby and Vince Welnick line-up has ever appeared on the big screen.

The Artists' Loft with Art Bennett
On the last Wednesday of each month from February through September, join Art Bennett and other guest teaching artists in the library’s café space for evenings of fun, creativity, and community. 
Musicians are welcome every month, with all musical skill levels welcome. Bring your instrument and any tunes you want to work on, or just bring your ears to relax and listen. Art likes to run a workshop-style event, where you get a chance to see how musicians who have never played before work together to create! An electric piano and a PA will be available.
A few times through the year, guest teaching artists will come and run workshops focused on visual arts, dance, and/or hip-hop in parallel to Art’s music workshop. These sessions are modeled after musician and educator Art Bennett's experience in the 1970s Loft Jazz scene in NYC, where artists of all mediums collaborated and created together. The Artists' Loft will create a place for artists of all mediums to come together in downtown White Plains. Learn more.
