Reigniting the Caroga Experience through interdisciplinary and inter-arts collaborations among musicians, artists, scholars, and their communities.

About

The Caroga Arts Collective (Caroga Arts) is a 501 c-3 not-for-profit organization based in Caroga Lake, NY. Caroga Arts acts as an umbrella for the Caroga Lake Music Festival, Your Body is Your Strad, InterArts Symposium, MyHil Film Series and other projects.

Caroga Arts seeks to bring together a community of artists to collaborate across fields and genres on interdisciplinary projects. Caroga Arts focuses on revitalizing local culture, business, and life by providing unique experiences through collaborative performances, exhibits, community outreach events and adult/youth education.

Inspired by the serene, beautiful lakes and inviting community, artists are dedicated to presenting innovate art in this relaxed, naturally intimate backdrop of the Adirondacks.

Caroga Arts takes pride in offering a humble and intimate artistic experience to our community, but also presenting a diverse and challenging repertoire performed with precision.

While in residence, all artists are encouraged to interact and connect with the residents of our Caroga Lake community and extend our sincere appreciation for their generous contributions to Caroga Arts.

Future Home Announced for Caroga Arts

Caroga Lake Music Festival thanks Bruce and Richard Veghte for their generous donation to the Caroga Arts Collective

The 10.5 acre property formerly known as the Schine Estate or “MyHil”, was recently donated to the Caroga Arts Collective by Bruce and Richard Veghte. The acquisition of this beautiful and historically significant site will allow the Caroga Arts Collective to proceed with the first phase of fulfilling its stated mission of having a positive economic and an inspiring artistic impact on Caroga Lake and in the Southern Adirondack region. Caroga Arts’ vision for this project is to create a year-round interdisciplinary artist community which will ultimately become the future home for Caroga Lake Music Festival.
