The Art Effect at the Trolley Barn
The Art Effect is pleased to announce our new gallery location at the historic Trolley Barn Gallery at 489 Main St, Poughkeepsie.
The mission of The Art Effect at the Trolley Barn is to train youth as leaders who catalyze the community through the arts and re-energize downtown Poughkeepsie. The iconic Poughkeepsie Trolley Barn will be re-activated with youth in the drivers seat of this incredible space, empowering them to engage community members and visitors in transformative arts experiences that they curate.
The new program brings together youth and established art professionals to present impactful exhibitions to engage our neighborhood and acquaint youth with curatorial and exhibitions practices.
Youth-led exhibitions and performances including showcases presenting students artwork, teen visions, and juried national exhibitions at the Trolley Barn are designed to strengthen our community and showcase the positive impacts of arts and arts education.
