Mission: To promote, support, and celebrate arts and culture in Central New York. We provide support and assistance to individual artists and arts and cultural organizations through access to grants, capacity-building assistance, education and training, and promotional services.
In response to the crisis facing the arts sector in Central New York due to shutdowns caused by the pandemic, CNY Arts’ has begun to raise $1M for the CNY Arts COVID-19 Impact Fund. This initiative, which has currently raised a quarter of its goal, has and will continue to provide emergency funding for arts agencies and artists across Central New York. We currently need to raise $20,000 by Dec. 31 to unlock matching grants from local foundations and reach our phase-two goal and get funding out to organizations and individual artists as soon as possible.
