With the mission of engaging and enriching our community through art, Radial Arts showcases artists, performers, and regional institutions through free, culturally-diverse, and distinctive arts experiences for audiences of all ages and backgrounds in and around Saratoga Springs.
Radial Arts has three primary goals:
1) To introduce Saratoga Springs’ artistic and cultural organizations and venues to new audiences
2) To provide access and exposure to the arts for those who may not ordinarily have it
3) To inspire and delight our community through art
Radial Arts was originally founded as a multi-day arts festival called SaratogaArtsFest by Skidmore College in 2007. Through deep collaboration with local arts and cultural organizations, the format of Radial Arts programming has evolved to seasonal, multi-genre events for which Radial Arts provides funding, artistic direction, and collaborative oversight. Throughout this evolution, our commitment to connecting new audiences to the community’s vast artistic and cultural experiences has remained steadfast. Radial Arts is a 501(c)3 organization.
