Since its founding, the Garrison Art Center has become a vital community resource that actively promotes the arts and arts education in the Hudson Valley. The Center serves approximately 11,000 annually, mostly from the local community and six surrounding counties. Additional visitors and participants come from New York City, Connecticut, and New Jersey. 

Our Mission: 
Founded on the banks of the Hudson River in 1966, the Garrison Art Center seeks to connect and enrich lives by cultivating an open environment for the creation and appreciation of art. 

Our Vision: Through education, exhibitions, and community outreach programs, our vision is to foster a vibrant, diverse community where art is everywhere and accessible for ALL to experience.
