What is the Arts Exchange?
Imagine a place where art and Commerce Intersect.
A bank filled with creative energy, a magnificent historic landmark tenderly restored as a counterpoint to newly built modern structures. A site where talented visual and performing artists create, rehearse, mingle and showcase their work. That was the dream of ArtsWestchester when we purchased and restored the old People’s National Bank, formerly a Chase bank, and recreated it as the Arts Exchange. It now hums with activity, but still belongs to the people, furthering our mission of making the arts available and accessible, offering something for everyone…a work of art all its own.
