Cortland First Fridays joins an informal nationwide movement to celebrate the
arts in local communities on the first Friday of each month. Participating
galleries, studios, artists, interested businesses, music and performing arts
venues will be open to the public from 5 pm to 8 pm to spotlight the arts.
The First Friday of each month is now a night to which many look forward in
upstate New York cities as downtown venues feature and celebrate the arts.
Binghamton, Rochester, Ithaca , Auburn, Skaneateles, Old Forge and others
have such evenings. Now, the Cultural Council of Cortland County is committed
to working with our community to bring First Friday to Cortland!The First Friday event is designed to be inclusive. It will encourage all galleries,
studios, SUNY Cortland entities, and other nonprofit and commercial businesses
interested in the arts to participate. The monthly event will encourage
collaboration among non-profit, university and commercial venues. This initiative
will showcase the wealth of talent of local potters, painters, artisan crafters,
poets and musicians in our community.The First Friday evening of each month from 5-8pm will become a community
night for experiencing art. We anticipate that First Fridays will foster a healthy
art scene and a healthy city through regular exchange and discussion among
venues, artists and patrons.Along with celebrating the arts, people will be encouraged to stroll the streets
and the shops, and grab a bite to eat at one of our many local restaurants. Plan
to make First Fridays in Cortland a habit!Funded in part by CNY Arts and NYSCA.For more information and to participate as a venue, email or call 607-753-1188.
