Ithaca’s cultural landscape is shifting. 
We want you to be a part of it.

“The Cherry’s sponsorship program provides a remarkable amount of value to businesses. We get a great amount of visibility in a personable, approachable manner that really fits with our brand—all while supporting an innovative, arts organization that does so much for our community.

Marshall McCormick,
Fingerlakes Wealth Management

Since our founding in 2014, the Cherry has grown into Ithaca’s most expansive arts destination. The new Cherry Gallery and Camilla Studio are now operating alongside the beloved Cherry Artspace theater, and bringing in large new audiences.

The Cherry Arts now serves a larger—and broader—audience than any other Ithaca cultural producer. 

A Business Partnership with the Cherry Arts is now more cost-effective than anywhere else—putting your business’ message in front of over ten thousand arts consumers during a full year of programming

Art premiered at the Cherry goes on to be shown in New York City, Los Angeles, London, and beyond. And our ongoing collaborations with companies like LilyPad Puppet Theater and Circus Culture fill our spaces with family audiences

If you want lovers of visual art, theater, dance, circus, children’s puppetry, comedy, and more, to know that your organization is a proud pillar of the community, supporting the arts that make Ithaca so special—the Cherry Arts is your one-stop partner!
