Rich Rivkin Presents

Organization Details

A passion for live music and art has been the driving inspiration for Rich Rivkin, who since 2000 has been creating and producing innovative live events which take place at some of Long Island’s most historic locations.

Rich’s events combine Live Painting with Live Music, and have brought together a large number of musicians, artists, spectators and familiar faces who share common interest, and a tangible sense of community.  The result has been more than just spectacular entertainment and new friendships, as ongoing opportunities for advancement of the arts continue to materialize and expand for many of the participants.

Rich’s Live Painting/Live Music events have showcased more than 150 regional artists who paint to the inspiration of the music and audience interaction.  A uniquely magical vibe takes hold as the artists’ brush strokes are directly influenced by the band’s music – which in turn engages the audience in a fun, high energy, human-feedback loop that fires up the musicians and stimulates the painters; an organic, interactive, multi-sensory experience for all.

As of 2015 Rich has produced a total of 35 not-for-profit/benefit festivals, and hundreds of ongoing indoor events, including Live Art Fusion, ArtMOSPHERE, Northport After Dark, Art Cafe, and Live at The Kahuna series.  His annual multi-themed Summer Arts Festival Series is hosted at several well known outdoor venues, and features legions of artists painting to the music of Long Island’s favorite bands.

Rich writes an Arts/Music column in the Village Connection Magazine, and is also a member of the Advisory Board at Arts Alive Long Island, and committee member at The Art League of Long Island. In 2013 Rich received Outstanding Advocate for The Arts Award from the Long Island Arts Council at Freeport.
