Watershed Laboratory 2017 Contemporay Performance in the Catskill Mountains

Celebrating Our 10th Season

We mark this year as a rite of passage.

Sown from the adventures of two young artists and their friends, Mount Tremper Arts has grown into a thriving and innovative public space, an experiment rooted in the belief that place and context are vital to making art and community.

We model our programming on our watershed ecosystem and the complex, symbiotic relationship between the Catskills and New York City. Nowhere is mutual dependence more evident than in watershed ecology; this interdependence is the foundation for the Watershed Lab, our new program partnering with New York City–based theaters to develop and present new works by adventurous contemporary artists.
