Since 1993, the Community Arts Partnership (CAP) has been one of the driving forces behind the vibrant arts community of Ithaca and its neighboring towns and villages.

The Community Arts Partnership’s mission is to strengthen the arts throughout Tompkins County while building the County’s reputation of being a cultural destination. Today CAP hosts four major public arts events: the Greater Ithaca Art Trail at; the Spring Writes Literary Festival at; the Ithaca Artist Market, an annual CAP-a-Palooza Vintage Art Sale. The CAP Artspace Gallery features monthly exhibits by local artists.

CAP also administers five different grant programs that support artists and arts programming, maintains a dynamic Artists’ Registry and helps artists with technical assistance, professional development workshops, and networking events.

Tompkins Center for History and Culture, 110 N. Tioga Street.  (CAP office – 3rd floor; CAP ArtSpace Gallery – ground floor). 607-273-5072
