The Arts Exchange
Imagine a place where art and commerce intersect. A bank filled with creative energy, a magnificent historic landmark tenderly restored as a counterpoint to newly built modern structures – a site where talented visual and performing artists create, rehearse, mingle and showcase their work – a place devoted to Westchester arts and artists. A place where artists and audiences can expect the unexpected, where ideas, discussion and art go hand-in-hand. A small corner in the heart of downtown White Plains that reflects the heart of a city.
That was the dream of ArtsWestchester when we restored the People’s National Bank at 31 Mamaroneck Avenue, formerly a Chase bank, and recreated it as the Arts Exchange. It now hums with activity, furthering our mission of making the arts available and accessible, offering something for everyone…a work of art all its own.
