Corporate Sponsorships

The Cherry Artspace is Ithaca’s home for innovative performance: a fresh and flexible waterfront venue on the Cayuga Inlet. From our base at the Artspace, the Cherry Arts produces work that is radical and innovative, hosting a variety of local and international artists. In our very first year, we welcomed more than 4000 audience members. Join us and be a part of the buzz! Take advantage of our sponsorship opportunities.

 

Cherry Family Tree

NEW IN 2018-19! As the Artspace changes layout for every performance, for every show we will find the perfect spot for our Cherry Family Tree. Add your company’s name to the Tree to let over 4000 annual audience members know that
you support the work of Ithaca’s innovative artists.

Cherry Productions

This season the Cherry Arts will create three mainstage productions that can’t be found anywhere else: two wonderful international plays in translation, and an inventive retelling of a classic tale. Mainstage productions run for two weekends, and we configure the Cherry Artspace differently for every show, so the experience is brand new each time the audience walks through our doors. Three levels of sponsorship are available for each production.
