New Arts Center coming to Malone
From Mountain Lake PBS:
Malone has a new art center, filling a gap in the Franklin County town that’s had no large space dedicated to both the visual and performing arts for 33 years.
It’s a building with an art gallery, and a vast area destined for music performances and other shows. The renovations of the turn-of the-20th century structure are the project of Foothills Art Society, an organization that’s brought quality arts programming to the North Country since the year 2000.
Listen to Mountain Lake PBS’s Spotlight producer Paul Larson’s interview with Foothills Art Society’s vice president Tamar BenArdout, and secretary and marketing chair Lorraine Cartier HERE.
More information on the Foothills Art Society is HERE.
The Malone Arts and Cultural Center is located at 45 Pearl Street in Malone
