The Arts Center has been providing visual and performing arts, arts education, workshops, and other programs to the residents and visitors of the Adirondack Park since 1967! We wouldn’t be able to do any of it without the generous support of our communities. We have been virtual, but we look forward to our return to live programming in June 2021!

Our 2021 season: "Back in Blue!"

The Adirondack Lakes Center for the Arts (ALCA) in Blue Mountain Lake, NY, is returning to live, SAFE programming in 2021 that we're calling Back in Blue! (apologies to rockers AC/DC). Having been closed to the public since before the COVID-19 pandemic, the Arts Center will be reopening its doors on Thursday, June 24, and will remain open through the summer and fall, until October 11! Our hours will be Thursday-Sunday, noon to 4 p.m. We will be displaying Gallery Exhibits by some amazing artists all season in our first-floor spaces. COVID-19 protocols will be followed, which currently include social distancing, temperature taking, contact tracing, and wearing of masks by all visitors (these protocols are subject to updates in New York State restrictions). Our Gift Shop will also be reopened to in-person browsing, featuring items by local artisans and artists and various Adirondack gifts!

Both our Weekend Series of concerts and the Adirondack Lakes Summer Theatre Festival are returning in a fun and SAFE format. We are creating an outdoor arts space called the ALCA-Seltzer Space: Outdoor Relief for the Return to Live Performance! The brainchild of General & Artistic Director George Cordes, the ALCA-Seltzer Space is named for our popular virtual series of video Shorts and Streams created during the pandemic, the ALCA-Seltzer Series: Online Relief from the Headaches of Social Distancing. The ALCA-Seltzer Space will consist of a large tented area, a stage with lighting and sound, and flexible seating.  Two of our concerts will involve use of our Steinway piano, and indoor audience will be limited.

Everything the Arts Center does is made possible by generous funding from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, along with our sponsors, including Pine’s Country Store, Tony Zazula & Mark Chamberlain, the Jane Jacobs Music Fund, Stewart’s Shops,  Cloudsplitter Foundation, Adirondack Foundation, & David Myers in memory of Anne Vaccaro and Jayson Grigsby.
