Building Community Through the Arts


Building Community Through the Arts

The Spencertown Academy Arts Center, entrusted with a unique historic landmark, is dedicated to preserving and maintaining the Academy building, providing a welcoming community space and to presenting programs in the arts and humanities for Columbia County and its neighbors.

Join Us. Become a Member or Volunteer.

For nearly 170 years our stately Greek Revival building has been serving the community in different ways. Since 1972 we’ve been a cultural center and community resource, offering a variety of free and affordable arts programs and events – concerts, readings, lectures, gallery exhibits and arts workshops and classes.

As an all-volunteer non-profit arts organization, your participation enables us to continue producing these programs, to pursue ongoing building preservation initiatives, and to offer three annual special events: Festival of Books, Revels, and Hidden Gardens.

Save time! Become a sustaining member to automatically renew your membership every year.

All members receive:

• The opportunity to participate in our annual members-only art exhibit.
• Special members’ promos at annual events.
