The Trail is a program of the Community Arts Partnership (ArtsPartner.org)

THE COMMUNITY ARTS PARTNERSHIP OF TOMPKINS COUNTY continues to act as one of the driving forces behind the vibrant arts community of Ithaca and the neighboring towns and villages.

FOR OVER 25 YEARS, OUR GRANTS, PROGRAMS, AND SERVICES HAVE BEEN:

CONNECTING ARTISTS AND AUDIENCES

An annual summer Ithaca Artist Market, the May Spring Writes Literary Festival, The CAP ArtSpace Gallery 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 4 million dollars over the past 25 years to artists, arts organizations, and not for profits for public programming, 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 funding programs, we offer professional development workshops, a consultant program, 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
