Genesee Valley Council on the Arts

Genesee Valley Council on the Arts (GVCA) is dedicated to enriching the quality of life throughout our region by encouraging and promoting the arts. Bertha Lederer founded GVCA in 1968 with the desire to bring the arts to a rural area, where the availability of arts and cultural programs had been limited. We have been successful for over 50 years, and some of our programs are over 30 years old. In 2008, we became the caretaker of over 200 WPA paintings created by artists employed by the Roosevelt administration during the Great Depression. These works hung in the buildings of the former tuberculosis sanatorium to which our building once belonged. They now hang in our New Deal Gallery on a rotating basis. We offer local artists free exhibit space and promotion in our galleries, and host two artist sales events annually. We offer classes to the public including ceramics, watercolor, yoga and Tai Chi; our ceramics studio is one of very few available in the area. Our volunteers provide arts and crafts activities to residents in our local nursing home adjacent to our facility, and we host an annual photography exhibit with our local ARC chapter (adults with disabilities).

We focus on: Arts and Culture, Community Benefit and Economic Development

Where we are: Livingston, Monroe
