FUSION 2024: Timeless Generosity

Picture it: It’s 2014, The Ice Bucket Challenge kept us cool for a good cause, Brad & Angelina tied the knot in France, & 24 artists (+ 1 staff member!) moved into the newly renovated Albany Barn at 56 Second Street.  The walls and floors were pristine (not for long, though!  Just ask Alex Waters-if you know, you know!).  Excitement was in the air-for all that was to come, for new connections and opportunities, for the possibilities of what we could accomplish for the Capital Region arts community.  We knew there was so much for us to do, but we were more than up for the task. And every step of the way, we had you-our friends, colleagues, and generous supporters-in our corners.  And that means more than you could possibly know.  

But what exactly has your support helped us accomplish since we opened our doors on Second Street for the very first time 10 years ago?  Well, let us tell you.

  • 3 buildings
  • 23 large scale murals on the walls of our cities
  • 1,224 events, classes, & programs in our spaces
  • $128,000+ paid out to artists

If those numbers don’t make you proud, I don’t know what will!

And it’s in this pride, and this reflection for all we’ve done in our past, that we find not only the excitement for our future as an organization, but the theme for this year’s Fusion: Timeless Generosity.
We can’t wait to celebrate with you on Friday, October 18th!
