This weekend marks the third go-round for the Paths to Pier 42 Spring Waterfront Celebration.  Four artist/designer combos have been selected to work with the Paths to Pier 42 partners along with community input in their vision for how they adorn the pier with creativity. This year’s teams are Combo Colab (Carolina Cisneros and Mateo Pinto), Stephanie DiamondMeredith Drum & Rachel Stevens, and Leroy Street Studio.

The kickoff party is this Saturday, from 12 to 4pm, where folks can not only chat up the artists, but can participate in a variety of fun, educational activities that ultimately hope to cultivate awareness of the waterfront and its surrounding community.

The big reveal of completed projects is slated for July 18 during the Summer Waterfront Celebration. For the full schedule of festival happenings, head to the website.
