Welcome to the Chenango Arts Council. We believe the arts build a strong and vibrant local community. That's why we support the growth and development of local arts through grants to artists and organizations, offer life long learning and experiences for residents and artists, and provide a beautiful venue for many types of events.

                        The Chenango Arts Council Invites Artists Entries for:

                             Public Arts Initiative 2015

Public Arts Initiative (PAI):  The PAI was created to present an inviting and welcoming image of our community as a destination place by bringing the arts to the public in everyday life.  Public art enriches the areas where we live, work and play, thereby increasing business, encouraging tourism and reducing unsightly or vacant areas. The PAI will support and showcase local area talent and give artists greater exposure for their work. Click on the above link for entry information.

The Summer Public Art Initiative gallery exhibit will be up until Friday, August 28 and is free and open to the public.

Visitors to the Summer Public Art Initiative Gallery Opening on Friday, June 26 enjoyed a homemade spread of delicious food prepared by Executive Director, Diane Batson-Smith. Don't miss the next opening on September 11th!!!
