Information gleaned from the Adirondack North Country Association (ANCA)
A new collaboration of non-profit organizations are working together to create an Adirondack Regional Arts Trail that will connect the North Country's arts organizations, galleries, theaters, artists and craftspeople through an online platform to help foster a unified identity for arts and artisan businesses across Northern New York.
The trail will produce a comprehensive strategy to highlight the many arts resources (such as betterArts!) across the Adirondack North Country region, as well as provide artists and artistic venues a stronger presence and a dedicated online home to engage with residents and visitors.
Adirondack North Country Association (ANCA), BluSeed Studios, Saranac Lake ArtWorks and Traditional Arts in Upstate New York (TAUNY) recently received a grant award to get the project started. The grant, in the amount of $59,200 from the New York State Council on the Arts was part of the North Country Regional Economic Development Council (REDC) awards announced Dec. 11 by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
