Since opening its doors in 1922, the Southern Vermont Arts Center has been enriching the community with first-class cultural, educational, and creative opportunities on their 100+ acres. With a rotating calendar of member and visiting exhibitions, the largest sculpture park in Vermont, and a busy schedule of dynamic classes for all ages, the Southern Vermont Arts Center has something for everyone.
A wide range of courses, from figure drawing to watercolors, are offered year-round on campus in the Joan Hay Madeira and Carriage House studios. Programming is created for all ages and all skill levels. In the summer, the 400 seat, Arkell Pavilion hosts performing arts events–from ballet to classical music to live theater. Those who come to Vermont for the outdoors will be able to enjoy the Boswell Botany Trail, as well as the many acres of woodland hiking when it’s warm, and sculpture park snowshoeing or cross-country skiing when it’s not.
