The Broome County Arts Council is moving to a new location with greater visibility for itself and the artists it serves.
The Arts Council announced that it will be relocating its offices to 95 Court Street at the corner of Chenango Street.
The 2,000 square foot facility will support the organization’s increased programming and will feature a new Artisan Gallery.
The gallery will be a new public art space that will serve as the platform for council members to showcase their work to the public.
Executive Director Nancy Barno Reynolds says this is just another step toward growing the Binghamton arts community.
“The arts do bring in money to this community. This is the stuff that makes our quality of life so wonderful. We have the Firehouse Stage, EPAC, Roberson, the Philharmonic, Tri-Cities Opera, the Know Theatre, so many wonderful arts opportunities,” Barno Reynolds says.
The gallery will also play host to guest speakers, book signings, public lectures and music performances.
The Artisan Gallery was made possible through a $25,000 grant from M and T Bank.
The premiere exhibition will take place on the next First Friday on November 2nd.
