The Arts District of Glens Falls is making progress with its multifaceted launch of an arts trail stretching from the Chapman Historical Museum to the Hyde Collection Art Museum and Historic Home. Plans include banners, bike racks, sidewalk stamps and public art to connect the 10 arts destinations and 14 arts organizations that comprise the Arts District.
Sponsorship opportunities are available for elements of the arts trail. Bright blue bicycle-shaped bike racks will be placed at the 10 arts destinations, and eight opportunities are still available. Sponsor names will be integrated into the wheel of the bike. The cost is $750 per bike rack for a two-year sponsorship, or $1500 per bike rack for a ten-year sponsorship.
There will also be a large Adirondack chair placed at the roundabout. Only six sponsorship opportunities are available for this option. $1000 per sponsor earns a plaque on the back of the chair. Email email@example.com if you are interested in sponsoring.
The Arts District are sending out pins to each Arts Hero who donates $10 or more to ten different arts organizations in Glens Falls, including the Arts District of Glens Falls, in the year 2021. Donations are tax-deductible. Fill out an online form to indicate that you have made a donation.
Launched in 2015, the Arts District of Glens Falls was created by 14 non-profit arts and cultural organizations in Glens Falls with the goal of downtown beautification aimed at enhancing the cultural experience of this art-centered district and encouraging visitors to our City. In addition, they have been working with the City of Glens Falls on a public art trail as part of the Downtown Revitalization Initiative.
Donations can be made online or with a check payable to The Arts District of Glens Falls and mailed to LARAC, 7 Lapham Place, Glens Falls, NY 12801.
