Contributing to a vibrant and healthy local economy for the Catskills region is a vital goal for us here at Mount Tremper Arts. Through internationally significant contemporary art programing, now in its ninth year, we’re helping to revive the region’s historical role as an exciting tourism destination within easy reach of New York City. We’re one part in a chain of interlinked small businesses making the Catskills a fantastic place to live and visit. These businesses are part of that chain, and are generously supporting the 2016 Watershed Laboratory. Help support MTA by shopping with them. Thank you, Business Sponsors!
