The Cornell Creative Arts Center is committed to supporting our community and local artists. In an effort to practice social distancing, The Cornell Creative Arts Center has shifted our galleries to be accessible online! Now, you can view our galleries both online and in-person. In-person visits are limited due to our facility capacity, so it’s best to contact us ahead of time to plan your visit.

About our Current Gallery Show:
The I.D.E.A. gallery opening will be held from 10am to 2pm, Saturday, May 1st. Due to Covid, capacity will be limited at the door, and all visitors must fill out a brief Covid tracing questionnaire. Masks must be worn at all times, so no food or drink will be permitted in the art center.
About the exhibit:
The I.D.E.A. art exhibition is a collaboration with New Horizons Resources (NHR), The Arc Mid-Hudson, and the Cornell Creative Arts Center. It was conceived to enable the diverse population of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities supported by NHR, and their staff to express their feelings about social injustice in our world and our community.
This show highlights artwork that expresses thoughts, feelings and experiences in regard to racism, social injustices and oppression faced by people supported and employed through both NHR and The Arc Mid-Hudson. We hope the work in this exhibit promotes a mutual understanding of how racism impacts our entire society and community, and provides opportunity for constructive dialogue and positive change. We aim to create an environment where people can feel safe and supported in their need to discuss these very important topics and their impact.
