Bennington Center for the Arts
The Bennington Center for the Arts is a unique facility combining the visual and performing arts within one complex. Located along Vermont Route 9 to the west of Old Bennmgton, the Center's four continuous spaces appear as a series of white barns, topped with a Vermont slate roof. The Center provides 9,000 square feet of exhibit space in four galleries, a conference room available for workshops and lectures, and a 350-seat theater with a scene shop, stage lighting and sound system.
Since its opening in 1994, the Bennington Center for the Arts has been host to two annual fine art shows, Art of the Animal Kingdom and Woman - The Artists' View, as well as many other traveling exhibits ranging from photography to Guatemalan weaving. The Center's permanent exhibits feature the Laumeister Collection of wildlife, Western, and Native American arts.
The Center's continuing mission is to bring world-class artists and performers to Vermont so that visitors may experience more of the inherent beauty of life and of the natural world. (information as of 8/00)
