The Montgomery Center for the Arts is dedicated to enhancing the vitality of life in our local regional communities by providing a venue for a diversity of educational, cultural, artistic, and social experiences.

Letter to the Public

The Board of the MCA has been working diligently to navigate ongoing projects, expenses, and opportunities for the organization, the building, and the community. Our efforts began 5 years ago and are progressing annually. We have composed the linked letter here to inform the public of the actions we are taking to meet our mission and serve our community.

Restoration of THE MCA

In 2021, the MCA was selected as one of nine VT community projects to receive a generous reward from the VT Preservation Trust Paul Bruhn Grant to help fund restoration efforts for the building at 2 Mountain Road.

"The Bruhn Historic Revitalization Grants, named for PTV’s founding President, Paul Bruhn, was created in partnership with Senator Leahy and the National Park Service to help rural communities throughout the country."

We were awarded $50,000 to address exterior repairs, stripping, and the repainting of the building. This is an incredible opportunity to finance a much needed restoration for this wonderful historic landmark that is such a beacon of Main Street.

The Bruhn Historic Revitalization Grant Program is administered by the National Park Service, Department of the Interior.

Contribute to the restoration of the historic windows and repainting of the exterior.

In Spring of 2022, the MCA contracted with VT Window Restoration [VWR] to restore the nine Main Gallery colored glass windows and transoms and the 8 lower level windows. The process of window extraction began in July when the sashes and casings were removed and relocated to VWR's warehouse workshop in Winooski. The full process to restore and reinstall them will take a year to complete. Click the icon below to view a gallery of photos of the window extraction process and the new storm windows that were installed.
