Our Mission

Saratoga Arts is your community arts center. Founded in 1986 by and for artists and audiences, Saratoga Arts’ mission is to enrich the region by cultivating a vibrant arts community and by ensuring that the arts are accessible to all.

In its 30+ years, Saratoga Arts has brought the arts to over 1,000,000 people through its programs and provided performing and visual artists opportunities to earn over $3,000,000 in art sales and performance fees. Saratoga Arts is a non-governmental, not-for-profit organization that relies on the support of our members, friends and community.

The Arts Center at 320 Broadway in historic downtown Saratoga Springs is the home for arts education for all ages; an art gallery; a gift shop, a performance space for film, music, theater, and much more.

All of our activities flow directly from our mission of making the arts accessible: we encourage and enhance public access to a full range of the arts and art modes, from traditional work by established artists and performers to contemporary work by emerging artists; we help all in the community recognize themselves as artists and explore their abilities to make art, and in our programming and approach to programming we enact that commitment; and finally, we work with other organizations in the region – arts presenters, business groups, and governmental agencies – toward our vision of a greater community that understands the powerful role the arts play in personal enrichment and community development, and the regional interconnections of all stakeholders in that vision.
