Lewiston Council on the Arts is proud to be a part of Arts Niagara an initiative of the Cultural Alliance of Niagara (CAN).   CAN is a member-powered collaborative that positions Niagara County's flourishing arts and cultural sector as a vital regional asset and visitor destination, essential to the region's economic success and quality of life.
We encourage you to check out their website for listings of the programs and activities offered by the participating organizations.

Lewiston Council on the Arts is dedicated to improving the quality of life for all by nurturing a thriving environment for the arts and for cultural activities, promoting opportunities for artists, encouraging public participation in the arts, and actively advocating for the arts.

We bring creative talent and public appreciation together to create an artistic identity for the beautiful and historic Village of Lewiston. Located in Upstate New York along the shore of the Niagara River, our proximity to Canada encourages the bi-national interchange of artists and performers and contributes to the abundant cultural richness of the Niagara region. Lewiston is a 90 minute drive from Toronto, Ontario, less than an hour from Buffalo, and minutes from Niagara Falls, NY.

We hope you will experience and enjoy the quality cultural programs and activities we offer and facilitate throughout the County and know that we recognize your role in supporting our efforts in making this happen.

The support of the community is key to our success and we thank the Town of Lewiston, the Village of Lewiston and our generous sponsors.
