Our Mission

The mission of the Peekskill Arts Alliance is to promote and serve the vibrant and diverse arts community in Peekskill and the Hudson Valley. The PAA presents arts events; fosters collaboration among artists, businesses, regional partners, and the public; engages new audiences; identifies sources of funding; and raises public awareness, appreciation, and recognition of the value of arts in the community.  

The PAA is a 501(c)(3) arts and education organization.

Where Your Fees Go 

Membership fees go towards so many projects.  All of our shows require printed materials, advertising and mailings.   The website needs an administrator updating and revising on a regular basis that is funded.  Open Studios is an enormous effort requiring all of the above times 10!  Plus, in the future we hope to be solvent enough to offer Art Grants for students and members. With our membership fees, the PAA plans on providing opportunities and a forum for our community of artists that might not happen without it.
