The new Strand Arts venue will be a multi-use art house with a mission to inspire bold and collaborative artistic experiences: visual, musical, and performance art produced in the spirit of excellence and curiosity for our residents and visitors alike. Conceived and led by artist Kelly Sullivan, designed by architect Michael Farewell, to be enjoyed by our entire community.
At Strand Arts, Lambertville, NJ, we’ll use the arts to create customized programs to help our corporate clients and organizations produce powerful and engaging meetings in a highly creative and professional environment. A gracious lobby, assembly space, and breakout studios will be modernized for today’s connectivity demands. Revenue from corporate clients will help sustain the development and production of new original art pieces throughout the year, supporting our mission to inspire bold and collaborative artistic experiences.
Housed in the old Strand Theatre, c.1915, we sit at 12 Coryell Street, the oldest street in Lambertville, three doors from the canal path, in the heart of our commercial district. Recreated and reimagined, this grand old gem will shine once again for the benefit of our community and visitors alike.
We know there are so many memories of the Strand held in the hearts of our neighbors. We invite you to share your stories here.
We will encourage our artistic directors to use these stories as inspiration, allowing them to incorporate lines, scenes, and scenarios into one piece of collaborative work to be shared with the community of Lambertville at the opening of the new Strand Arts Theatre.
Strand Arts is forming a collaborative of artists in the area who are interested in participating, displaying, performing, or teaching. We are also seeking artists who have the ability to customize their work for corporate clients at Strand Arts. Strand Arts will include a gallery lobby with rotating shows as well as a performance space that features theater, improv, comedy, and readings. We invite all professional artist in the surrounding area to become part of the Strand Arts Collaborative. We are dedicated to creating paid opportunities for artists during this challenging time as artistic spaces reopen, reimagining how our model can best serve artists, clients, and communities. Together we will support our forward motion and the incubation of creative ideas that energize the present and shape the future. Thank you for the work you make, and for your interest in joining the Strand Arts Collaborative.
