The IAW&A Salons, the brainchild of Malachy McCourt, began in June of 2011. At the monthly meetings, IAW&A member artists gave presentations of up to ten minutes in any genre. A plethora of talented novelists, poets, musicians, filmmakers, painters, and theatre artists beat a path to the Bar Thalia on the first Tuesday of every month. After a few months, the Salons grew so popular and artistically successful that the IAW&A added a second evening at the Cell Theatre on the third Tuesday of every month. As this welcoming and supportive Salon community grows and thrives, a third evening per month may be added sometime in 2014.

We are putting together a team of people to take turns acting as Salon hosts and assembling blog posts that summarize each Salon. If you would like to be on the Salon team, send an email to IASalon@hotmail.com.

PLEASE NOTE: Starting April 1st, 2014, Salons at Bar Thalia will start at 6PM instead of 7PM. Salons at the Cell Theatre will continue to start at 7PM. These events are held every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month and are held at the following locations:

Cell Theatre
338 W. 23rd Street
New York, NY 10011
(Between 8th and 9th Aves.)
