Peoples Pixel Project returns in 2021!
We are excited to relaunch P3, knowing it is important more than ever for film makers to have a platform to show their work. For 2021 we’ve expanded our geographic reach and also made some changes to the program format.
New this Year: In place of an in-person screening event, we present “P3 Conversations” – a series of 4 live online events Thursday evenings in the month of May, starting at 7 pm. See schedule HERE.
Each week is hosted by a different guest moderator, or LGAP staff, who will interview a selection of our 2021 film makers. We’ll screen the work of participating artists and talk inspiration, process, pandemic challenges, and about the future. View this year’s films HERE.
Spring for the Arts Golf Tournament
Join us on May 16, 2021 at Cronin’s Golf Resort for our first fundraiser of 2021 – Our Spring for the Arts Golf Tournament! The tournament will be a 4 person scramble with a noon, shotgun start. $100 per golfer will get you golf, a cart, lunch, a steak dinner, and an awards ceremony – we’ll have prizes, an auction and a raffle, too!
Please consider being a hole sponsor, or donating a raffle item! All proceeds benefit The Lake George Arts Project’s public programs, which are always free and open to all!
Donate to our Annual Appeal
A global pandemic hasn’t stopped us from fulfilling our mission this year! Since March 2020, we’ve reintroduced our popular Collector’s Club, we presented a Virtual Jazz Series with seven of the Jazz world’s most amazing artists, we’ve made improvements to our website to make it more comprehensive and easier to navigate, and we’ve relaunched the Peoples Pixel Project. Reimagining current programs, reviving programs from long ago and introducing new program models will put us in a more sustainable position when we can fully operate again – setting us up for an even stronger more visible presence in the community and region. When we get back to normal, we have big plans to expand both our visual arts programming as well as work with our friends in the community to deliver a longer presenting season.
If you have benefited from our programming – or value the availability of our programs in the community, please consider making a contribution. Our friends and supporters helped us get through 2020, allowing us to start 2021 strong. We are planning for a live Jazz Weekend in Shepard Park on September 18 & 19, 2021. Please stay tuned for details on that, as well as our summer concerts and other live performances in August! Our Courthouse Gallery remains open with public safety protocols in place: mask required + social distancing. We hope you have a chance to stop by to see our current exhibition, and to say hi!
