Rome Art & Community Center plays an important role in fostering creativity, cultural awareness, and a strong community connection through a broad range of arts and culture programming and services to the Greater Rome community and Oneida County, from children to seniors.


2023 was a great year at The Art Center and 2024 is looking to be an even better year. We were fortunate to have strong and growing attendance for all of our events last year and are looking forwarding to expanding what we offer to our community. Some of the events we offer are art exhibitions, children’s events, arts classes, free concerts, and strong educational programs that teach thought the lens of arts. In 2024 we will be adding Market, Music, and More... an event designed to bring the entire community together every Monday during the summer by having a farmers market, food trucks, live music, and children’s activities.

In order to achieve our mission and continue our programming we rely heavily on the support we receive from our members, volunteers, and our gracious sponsors. Every sponsorship allows us to provide the community with more opportunities to ”Step Into The Arts”, offer many of our events for FREE, and offer scholarships to our various school break and summer arts camps. Ensuring that everyone regardless of age, race, economic status, or physical ability can “Step Into The Arts”!

We appreciate your consideration in becoming a sponsor in the 2024 year. Becoming a sponsor is not only an investment in our organization but in your community. Research has even shown that cities that emphasize the arts have more civic and social engagement, better child welfare and even lower poverty rates.
