Support Tupper Arts' NEW "Encore" Capital Campaign

Dear Friends,

Tupper Arts is living its mission of nurturing the arts and artists in our community. In the few years since our conception, we have brought musical performances, exhibited individual art shows and the Tupper Lake Annual Arts Show, the Tupper Lake Plein Air Festival, Little Logger Kids Shows, dance classes, workshops and more!


None of this would have been possible without the tremendous support of our donors and community members.


Now we have an incredible opportunity to save The Adirondack State Theater. This iconic movie house has been in existence in Tupper Lake for over 100 years! Through a generous grant awarded to Tupper Arts by the New York State Downtown Revitalization Initiative (DRI), Tupper Arts will be able to renovate and upgrade the theater.


Before we can begin work on this project, we must first purchase the building. By investing $200,000, we can leverage $700,000 in DRI funds to complete this restoration. The “Encore" Capital Campaign, will raise the funds for this purchase so we can begin its historical transformation.


With the advent of streaming platforms, rising costs and the aftermath of Covid-19, the future of modern commercial theaters is grim. Without Tupper Art's commitment to undertake the purchase and renovation of the State Theater, it may be lost forever.


It is with a sense of urgency, we ask for your continued support. The purchase must take place before the end of the year. Please come together for yet another encore and help us breath new life into this iconic venue. Please use the Capital Campaign donate button below. Once again, thank you for your continued support.

To make this happen, we need
