A Look at the Binghamton Arts and Culture Scene

How is art fairing in Binghamton? Within the last couple of decades, the art scene in Binghamton has grown considerably. Not only has the city increased the total number of art galleries, but it has also brought more art festivals and more local arts events. For example, the Gorgeous Washington Street Association regularly draws huge crowds and presents a variety of art events, from music to dance to painting and theater.

Another noted authority in Binghamton arts and culture is the Anderson Center for the Performing Arts. These three theaters are hosted at the Binghamton University Campus on Vestal Parkway.

There are also many Binghamton art galleries in the area featuring paintings, sculptures, photography and pottery. Some of the most popular galleries include the Anam Cara Art Gallery, the Art Mission and Theatre, the Cooperative Gallery, La Loba Creations and the Open Studio “Art Gym.” When visiting the art galleries you will find the latest works from established artists and emerging artists.

In addition to art, there are many other cultural attractions in the Binghamton area. In culture and dance, visitors can enjoy a show at the Galumpha Theater (dance, comedy and audience interactivity) or at the Rafael Grigorian Ballet Theatre. For music lovers, it’s hard to imagine missing a show at the Binghamton Philharmonic Orchestra or the Tri-Cities Opera. The Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena and Forum Theater. The arena and the forum host various musical productions.

For fans of the Twilight Zone, you will find the Rod Serling Video Festival on Main Street very interesting as well as the Rod Serling Museum. The festival hosts short film entries, which is great for the local community.

Binghamton art is alive and well. You may come for the carousels and the history, but it will be hard to tear yourself away from the Parlor City’s art scene.
