Construction on the art center began in 1980 and opened June 28, 1981, with an exhibition that included artists from 12 Central New York counties. That tradition continues today with our annual Made in NY exhibition.
The Schweinfurth hosts two other annual exhibits, in addition to about a dozen other shows that highlight different themes and regional artists.
Early every year, we host Both Ends of the Rainbow and Three Lakes Sampler, two exhibits that highlight art made by preK to Grade 12 students and senior citizens from Central New York.
Every late fall since 1982, we host Quilts=Art=Quilts, an exhibit of contemporary textile artwork from around the world.
Our new hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays and 1 to 5 p.m. Sundays. We are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
