May 1st, 2023 –  A dream of artist housing will become a reality for the Hubbard Hall Center for the Arts and Education, thanks to a state $279,000 matching grant announced in April.

The grant from the New York State Council on the Arts, part of $42 million awarded for small- and mid-sized capital projects at state arts and cultural organizations, “just opens up floodgates to our ability to serve,” said our past Executive and Artistic Director David Snider. By providing housing for visiting artists, the arts center will be able to expand its artist residency program and host visiting artists for performances and other events.
