The Albright Center for the Arts, a project of Sunbury’s Revitalization, Inc. (SRI), has a vision to become a community hub for arts, culture, and education in the Susquehanna Valley.
Community arts, culture, and educational programming will find a home at the Albright Center for the Arts in Sunbury with the ability of a garden-level to host music, performances, and gatherings for up to 250 people. There is also a larger performance space with seating for 400-600, as well as smaller rooms appropriate for gallery type shows and small events (up to 40 people).
Additionally, events such as business and trade shows, job fairs, corporate training, out-of-town conventions and more will be able to utilize the center as a meeting and conference facility.
The Albright Center for the Arts has potential to bring the community together, attract residents, businesses and visitors to Sunbury, and improve quality of life for residents of Sunbury and the Greater Susquehanna Valley region.
Current Renovation Project:
We are undergoing a $1 Million renovation project that will install new heating and air conditioning in the lower level and new floors, walls, plumbing and electrical systems in the commercial kitchen making it ready for the installation of kitchen appliances and equipment. These improvements will enhance the banquet hall (renovated in 2016) as a venue for small audience performances, seminars, receptions, and banquets. The money generated by venue rentals will help fund daily operating costs and future improvement projects.
The funding for this project is a combination of a RACP Grant from the Commonwealth of PA, Degenstein Foundation Grant, and private donors.
FINISH THE KITCHEN!
Due to rise in construction costs, the purchase and installation of kitchen appliances and equipment had to be cut from our current renovation project. We are working hard to raise the funds to FINISH THE KITCHEN! Having a fully equipped commercial kitchen will enable us to support small businesses and entrepreneurs in the food industry, provide cooking classes and kitchen skills training, and offer food programs for people in need. This is a TOP PRIORITY for 2023!
