The Future Waterfall Arts, Unveiled…
Tuesday, November 12
2:00 PM
Clifford Gallery

This event will give the community and the press alike a chance to learn firsthand about the exciting changes Waterfall Arts has in store for the building and why they matter. Various local dignitaries and community members will speak at the event. Renderings of the proposed changes, designed by local award-winning firm OPAL, will be available to peruse. Members of the Waterfall Rising committee will be on hand to answer questions.

The proposed changes will shift the look and feel of this prominent historical building—one of the first buildings people see when coming into town from Route 1. Ensuring that Waterfall Arts’ programs and events are accessible to all, as well as securing the sustainability of the aging building are the key motivating factors behind this campaign.

Waterfall Arts’ Capital Campaign has reached a critical juncture and the organization plans to break ground in August 2020. The organization has already raised $1.2 million of the $2.6 million needed to complete the project, including a $350,000 grant from the Environmental Protection Agency.

Since 2000, Waterfall Arts has provided high quality arts programming to Waldo County and beyond. Originally located at Kingdom Falls in Montville, Waterfall Arts moved into the Anderson School in 2006. Since then, Waterfall Arts has continued to patch and paint the building while thousands of community members participate in its programs. Thanks to lively local community, Waterfall Arts continues to thrive and grow, however, the beloved Anderson School (built in 1935) is deeply in need of a massive revitalization in order to rise to the future and continue to meet the needs of Waldo County and beyond.

The time to retool, restore, and revitalize a part of local history, by making new history at the old Governor Anderson School is here! Find out how Waterfall Arts plans to rise up and meet the future. We can’t wait to share our plans with you.
