Vance Gilbert is performing in NoMad New York this weekend

There are many fun and free events for the family in NoMad this weekend. Head over to the park for some awesome events for the whole family.

First off, there is a family art workshop on saturday. There will be a morning session from 10am-12pm and an afternoon session from 1pm-3pm. This event will focus on light instillation artist Leo Villareal’s upcoming show in the park.

His work will be used as a jumping off point to teach kids about many of the concepts found in his art. These include shapes and geometry as well as how to make art in a fun and creative manner.

After working on art with your kids, you can expose them to some great music on the central lawn of the park. Singer/songwriters Vance Gilbert and Caleb Hawley will be performing. Gilbert made his start in the folk clubs of Boston in the 90s and has built a following since then. Hawley, who appeared on American Idol, is of a younger generation and is influenced by Tom Waits and Randy Newman.
