About The Athens Cutural Center
Over 150 years ago, the Hudson River School, the country’s first indigenous art movement, was founded in our back yard. Today, we continue this aesthetic tradition by serving as a home for artists, performers and art lovers.
The Athens Cultural Center offers a full schedule of arts and cultural programming, community events, classes, exhibitions, and more. We are housed in a former storefront decorated with graceful cast iron pillars just a few steps from the majestic Hudson River.
Our overall mission is to encourage understanding of the arts in this reviving area of the Hudson Valley. Once again, artists, writers, performers and musicians have become key residents of our village. We provide a space for them to share their special talents with their neighbors.
You can help us fulfill our mission by becoming a member or by donating your time as we educate, enlighten and restore.
