Founded in 1919, the Woodstock Artists Association & Museum exhibits, collects and supports artists and art education. The Association believes in sustaining the tradition of Woodstock as a “Colony of the Arts.”

The Museum is located in the center of the village of Woodstock, New York. It functions as a cultural center and a repository for the work of American artists associated with the Art Colony.

Each year, the WAAM presents a full schedule of group, solo and historic exhibitions of regional artists throughout its five spacious galleries.
