The Chinquapin Center for the Arts

  

is dedicated to promoting artistic excellence, fostering creativity, and enhancing the role of art in society through programs and residencies offered in an environment of peaceful solitude.  Knowing that the Arts are an essential part of who we are as individuals, as a nation, and as a global society we believe that they should receive all of the support that is needed to thrive and to maximize their contribution. 


"That's why we do what we do"


We are just getting our program started and can only host one resident artist at a time until we develop more studio space. Please check the "Residency" page for more information.
