Widespread community support will ensure diverse programming, educational outreach opportunities, a gathering place for local residents, and enhance the creative and cultural soul of Stowe. Our not-for-profit model requires community support to nurture this wonderful gift provided by 37 families who funded the initial development of the Arts Center.
