Eric Woodlin, president of Incoming Tide Entertainment and founder of the PAC House Theater, passionately says “I have been dreaming of transforming the grounds of Wildcliff into a ‘Tanglewood’ on the New Rochelle shoreline. To create a place to go every weekend and be able to experience a full range of arts and entertainment has long been my mission and I am excited to see it begin to be realized.” Judith Weber, a ceramic artist and the founder of Media Loft, the only Artist in Residence Condominium in Westchester County, has joined Eric in the summer project. She shares her hopes “for the arts to become an almost every day event in New Rochelle.” Judith has worked many years to highlight the cultural richness of the New Rochelle community and is excited to help to bring people, local and out of the area, to Wildcliff this summer. Eric and Judith met through their combined interest and together, as a team, plan to build the summer fare at Wildcliff.
The public is invited to bring family and friends to this Free event. Bring your picnic, relax, shop and play!
