Help make space for artists. Donate to Mount Tremper Arts.

The stakes have always been high for the risk-takers, those who dare. Our artist community has long recognized that experiment leads us forward, and for 12 (official) seasons Mount Tremper Arts has supported those who provoke and invent. Now that the stakes are greater than ever, we hope you will support this creative laboratory by making a contributionLet’s make sure these artists always have a place to go.
At MTA's 10th Season Gala, we thanked co-founders Mathew Pokoik and Aynsley Vandenbroucke for making space for artists - not just physical space, but empty space by imposing few restrictions, intellectual space through dialogue, and emotional space from their nurturing support and advocacy for so many years.
Now, after 300+ artist residencies and 160 public performances, this space they built 15 years ago is fortified by a community that understands why artists should experiment, and why we should care that they do.
Thank you for being a part of this community. I hope you are able to help artists create new work by making a gift to Mount Tremper Arts.
See you in the mountains!
