Cultural Center Brings Arts and Humanities Programming to Sullivan County
Bethel Woods Center for the Arts has expanded educational offerings rooted in the arts and humanities through countless programs since first opening in 2006. Now, celebrating its 10th year, Bethel Woods’ focus is on inspiring, educating, and empowering in all that they do. Each program, whether for youth, teens, or the whole family, is aimed to foster fundamental skills, immerse them in the arts, and encourage creativity, confidence, and problem solving skills.
Bethel Woods offers programs ten months of the year for children across the region. In 2015, education and community outreach programming at Bethel Woods brought creative exploration, learning, and the lessons of the sixties to nearly 30,000 individuals aged 3 months to 70 years young. This spring, Bethel Woods, brings popular programs including Saturdays at the Woods, back to The Conservatory, and Creole culture to the community with their E3 program featuring Terrance Simien & The Zydeco Experience.
The Museum at Bethel Woods features continually evolving exhibits and moving film and lecture series. On display, starting this spring, RIGHTS, RACE & REVOLUTIONS: A Portrait of LIFE in 1960s America by Grey Villet. This 2016 special exhibition will feature Villet’s work, a LIFE Magazine photographer and photojournalist whose photo essays helped to document the events of a world in transition during the 1960s.
