For the past 30 years, the West Side Arts Coalition has been committed to providing artists and art lovers alike a shared space to promote and enjoy a shared passion of the arts within the community. It was founded in 1979 by a group of visual and performing artists on the Upper West Side and was granted a Not-for-Profit status in 1980. Since then, members hail from all over the United States as well as the globe.

The West Side Arts Coalition is also responsible for sponsoring other exciting exhibitions and performances at different venues, including Cork Gallery in Lincoln Center and the Arsenal Gallery at Central Park. The coalition offers cultural programs that benefit the community and friends of the city, such as the Auction for the Benefit of the Homeless, the AIDS Awareness Exhibition, Black History Month Exhibit, Women’s History Month Exhibit, Hispanic Heritage Month Exhibit, and Global Warming Exhibit.

It looks like 2020 will continue to provide inspiration and conversation for artists and art lovers. Check out their website for more upcoming events.
