Community Arts Partnership
The Community Arts Partnership of Tompkins County acts as one of the driving forces behind the vibrant and connected arts community of Ithaca and the neighboring towns and villages.
For 30 years, CAP has been providing programs and services
CONNECTING ARTISTS AND AUDIENCES
An annual summer Ithaca Artist Market, the Spring Writes Literary Festival, The CAP ArtSpace Gallery, the CAP-a-Palooza Art Sale, and the Greater Ithaca Art Trail are all “CAP” programs.
FUNDING THE ARTS IN TOMPKINS COUNTY
We have six grant programs, and have administered over 5 million dollars over the past 27 years to artists, arts organizations, and not for profits for community events, individual career opportunities, and school residencies.
HELPING ARTISTS MAKE A LIFE IN TOMPKINS COUNTY
There are over 1,000 artists each year that benefit from CAP and that number continues to grow. Along with our events and grants, we also offer professional development workshops, an on-line artist database, and meet with artist daily to provide support, advice, brainstorming and connections to area resources. CAP is proud to assist local artists in producing the creative work that so enriches our community.
Major support for CAP comes from the New York State Council on the Arts, a State Agency, and the Tompkins County Tourism Program
