The CMF vision for our arts programming is to combine high quality performance, artist residencies, and arts education in a multi-faceted program that will deliver broad impact to our community. Our arts programming includes performances in music and dance, in comedy and theater, and visual arts courses with a focus on ceramics and painting. Music residencies, theater residencies, and dance residencies occur throughout the year, offering many opportunities to the public to attend master classes, young people's performances and interactions with the artists at work.
Our community is varied, consisting of full-time residents, weekend second home owners, and visitors to the region, in addition to the artists that benefit from residencies held at our facilities, participation in our performances, or sales of crafts at our gallery. Participants in our programs range from the very young to those very young-at-heart!
At the core of the Catskill Mountain Foundation's vision is a belief that the arts can transform the lives of those touched by it, and can transform our community.
