The West End Arts Campus will unite the grounds of the Cayuga Museum of History and Art and the Schweinfurth Art Center to create a singular, accessible space for visitors to engage with the transformative power of the Arts.

The project has received a $1.9 million pledge from New York State’s Downtown Revitalization Initiative, and the Cayuga Museum needs to raise $500,000 to match this support. 

Once completed in 2024, the Arts Campus will:

  • Improve Access through the construction of safe, unified walkways, ADA standard entryways, better signage, and a renewed focus on our greenscape.
  • Increase Cultural Tourism by expanding the capacity of our grounds through upgraded parking and sidewalk infrastructure.
  • Build Community with the new ability to host local business meetings, create more outside events with input from our neighborhood, and attract larger audiences to current programming. We project we will be able to accommodate and attract 30,000 visitors a year through increased, coordinated programming.

Create a lasting impact on our community! Build the West End Arts Campus!
