Caroga Arts awarded $850,000 by the New York State Council on the Arts to Support the Myhill Campus in Caroga Lake

Caroga Arts Collective announced a grant award totaling $850,000 from the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) to support the construction of a year-round artists’ lodge at Myhill as part of the Sherman’s Legacy Campaign. This grant is part of a capital project funding announcement by NYSCA, which totals over $32 million to 102 capital projects across New York State.

“We are incredibly grateful to the New York State Council on the Arts for their support of constructing a year round multi-use lodge at Myhill as part of our Sherman’s Legacy Campaign,” said Kyle Barrett Price, Founder, Executive & Artistic Director of the Caroga Arts Collective. “This grant will help us create the supporting infrastructure for year round engagement and programs in Caroga Lake and surrounding regions thus helping further our mission of reimagining the Adirondack experience through the power of the arts.

Sherman’s Legacy Campaign

The Sherman’s Legacy Campaign will help Caroga Arts revitalize Sherman’s Park and the Myhill Campus into an Adirondack vacation destination where music, arts, community, and culture flourish. Constructing an artists’ residential lodge is part of the project’s first phase, which also includes the creation of a state-of-the-art amphitheater at Sherman’s Park. The lodge at Myhill will provide needed accommodations, rehearsal/performance spaces, administrative workspace, teaching spaces for Caroga Arts’ education programs, and more.

New York State Council on the Arts Executive Director Erika Mallin said, “We are grateful to Governor Hochul and the Legislature for their support. These projects are essential to the prosperity and well-being of our creative industry and our communities, especially as we continue to navigate the recovery of our creative sector. This support will help stimulate local economies, catalyze investment in our communities and help to ensure the vibrancy of our cultural organizations for now and for the future. Congratulations to Caroga Arts Collective, NYSCA is a proud supporter of your contributions to New York’s arts and culture.”
