THE CHERRY ARTS is a not-for-profit arts facilitator and presenting organization. We support a wide range of artists and arts organizations, in a variety of disciplines. We do this primarily by hosting them, and their work, in:

THE CHERRY ARTSPACE. The Artspace is a flexible, multidisciplinary arts and performance venue located at 102 Cherry Street on the banks of the Cayuga Inlet in Ithaca’s West End. Click here to learn more!

The main focus of our support is THE CHERRY ARTISTS’ COLLECTIVE, a self-governing ensemble of locally-based professional artists. The Collective develops new performance works that are radically local, radically international, and formally innovative. In recent years, the Collective has presented new plays from countries including France, Germany, Serbia and Argentina, and commissioned innovative new performance works (including headphone walking-plays and plays incorporating video) from Ithaca-based writers.

In addition to the works of the Artists’ Collective, the Cherry curates a full season of programming in the Artspace, including dance, music, puppetry, visual arts, and other exceptional works from Ithaca-area artists and beyond. Join us!


The Cherry Arts, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, and we could not exist without the support of arts lovers like you. Please click here to make a tax-deductible donation. We thank you for your support!
