MCGD Artists’ Salon SERIES

Our Artists’ Salon events take place approximately every other month on a Sunday from 3 to 5PM. They are free and allow musicians, dancers, writers, and visual artists to share short works or works-in-process and engage in dialogue in positive, friendly setting. Our community can look forward to experiencing diversity and socializing with art makers and fellow art enthusiasts. These events take place in the loft space of Marie-Christine Giordano located in Brooklyn. A warm supporting environment for artists to share and see new work.

Thanks so much for welcoming the community into your home this Sunday. I really enjoyed the performances as well as the opportunity to meet others who share a similar love for new and moving cultural experiences.
