The Rye Arts Center

Organization Overview

The Rye Art Center was founded in 1960 by five Rye families and four hundred odd dollars. The Rye Arts Center serves more than 35,000 residents annually in approximately 30 towns/villages, covering a diverse region in Westchester and lower Fairfield Counties. Its programs, which cost over $1,200,000 a year to operate, are supported by tuition, memberships, private and public grant-making agencies, corporate contributions, special events, and the generous donations of individuals in our communities. Our mission is to inspire life-long enthusiasm and participation in the arts through best-in-class artistic offerings and educational programs. We strive to positively impact our local communities by bringing attention to the importance of the arts, creating a destination for diverse voices, and providing meaningful artistic opportunities.
