History of the Art Center
The Chaffee Art Center has always served as a community-oriented space that preserves and educates visitors on the rich history of Rutland’s past.
The Center’s history begins in 1961 when the Area Art Association was founded with the core mission of promoting the art found within Rutland County. The Art association then partnered with Chaffee Art Center to help build new relationships with community members and spread art appreciation.
The Art Center is housed in an eloquent Queen Anne Victorian Mansion, built by George Thrall Chaffee in 1895. The original house boasts exquisite architecture including cut marble, a three-story corner tower, gothic windows and parquet floors that truly encapsulate the beauty of the art exhibitions housed inside.
