The Arc Mid-Hudson is proud to announce the development of the new and exciting Cornell Creative Arts Center that is scheduled to be open in 2019.


The Arts Center is 10,000 square feet of open space that will be transformed into 10 artist studios, 1 dance/movement studio and a community room workshop. Professional artists, videographers, graphic artists and various dance & movement teachers will have the opportunity to rent studio space at an affordable rate, and teach classes to people we support and to the general public. The Arc Mid-Hudson currently supports many aspiring artists that will benefit from utilizing the Cornell Creative Arts Center as a way for them to express their artistic abilities and gain confidence and pride in the artwork they create.

To make the Cornell Creative Arts Center a reality, we must raise $1 million dollars for the design and construction of the art studios. The 2018 Wine & Dine kicked off the fundraising efforts with their Live Auction raising over $10,000 for the Cornell Creative Arts Center. More fundraising and Donor Naming opportunities will be available beginning in the summer of 2018 for this 2-year campaign.

Every dollar we raise will go towards the funding of this project. If you or your organization is interested in sponsorship opportunities or to learn more about the Cornell Creative Arts Center, please contact Lori McCabe Director of Communications and Public Relations for The Arc Mid-Hudson at 845-768-5067
