Who We Are
ArtsWestchester is your complete guide to the arts.
Established in 1965 as the Council for the Arts in Westchester, we are New York State’s largest private, not-for-profit service organization, working to ensure the availability and accessibility of the arts for all of the county’s residents. In 1975, we were named by Westchester County government as the County’s designated arts council and we became one of several united arts funds in the country, providing grants and technical support to cultural organizations and artist residencies in the community.
Today, as ArtsWestchester, our board and staff continue to work to weave the arts into the fabric of Westchester life, strengthen the county’s cultural institutions, and enrich the quality of life for all Westchester’s residents.
