Threshold Arts Membership & Sponsorships
Threshold Arts is a 501(c)3 nonprofit arts organization which was founded to program and activate the artistic and common spaces within the Castle Community. The mission of Threshold Arts is to provide year-round space, material resources, and educational programming for artists at all levels of experience; to connect members of Rochester’s rich, intercultural, multidisciplinary creative communities while engaging regional and global audiences; and to strengthen the economic vitality of Southeast Minnesota’s maturing arts scene. Threshold Arts will accomplish this by working toward the following goals:
Provide exposure for artists (visual artists, literary artists, performing artists, etc...) and space to make, show, teach, and sell their art
Host programs that connect the community and foster collaboration, including: concerts, performances, events, classes and workshops, retreats, and more
Create an environment in which artists can connect with the community
Offer opportunities for creative engagement for the community
Maintain a civic space for the community to gather, connect, and celebrate
You can get involved and/or support the work of Threshold Arts by becoming a member or sponsoring specific artist programs. For more information on membership and sponsorship opportunities, please contact Naura Anderson at firstname.lastname@example.org or (507) 218-7214.
