Past Events


What if there was a place you could hear a brass quartet ensemble, participate in a poetry slam, learn to move to the Salsa beat, see Shakespeare's work come alive, view a vibrant watercolor exhibit and sip tea in a Victorian parlor? What if all these opportunities and more were housed in two 122 year old landmark buildings in the middle of a neighborhood undergoing a renaissance; where galleries, restaurants, other historic sites, the railroad station and the majestic Hudson River are only blocks away?

This place DOES exist. It is the:

Cunneen-Hackett Arts Center!

The Cunneen-Hackett Arts Center is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. It exists to meet the cultural needs of the community by providing venues for both professional and amateur artists to showcase their talent in music, dance, fine and visual arts AND to preserve the two historically significant structures.

Save the Date: Thursday, April 10th!

Magnolia blossom

"The annual Magnolia Party is an honoring acknowledgement of Spring, our glorious historic Magnolia Tree and our Center. The Cunneen Hackett Arts Center hosts this event every April . This party is a low key and casual fund raiser where gourmet treats, wine, live music and a silent auction fill 2 hours of socializing and celebrating."
