Welcome Back to the Arts in CNY
Updated September 8, 2020
Nearly 6 months after the pandemic forced venues across the region to temporarily shut down, arts, cultural, and heritage sites are beginning to safely open back up to the public.
With guidance from Albany, venues that have reopened or reopening soon now have in place protocols to keep visitors safe. Although venues are welcoming guests, many have to do so at 25% capacity. It's important to visit and support your favorite arts organizations so they can remain open and viable until the pandemic ends.
You can also support the CNY artistic and creative sector by donating to the CNY Arts COVID-19 Arts Impact Fund. The goal is to raise $1 million dollars to ensure our the survival of our region's arts and cultural treasures.
Below is a on-going list of arts, cultural, and heritage venues that are open including links to their safety measures. Please visit this page to keep update on information about the Reopening of the Arts in CNY. You can also visit our Events Calendar to explore programs and events across the region including virtual events.
