Welcome to the Garden!

The Carpenter Art Garden is located at 301 Carpenter Street. Under the umbrella of the Binghampton Development Corporation, the art garden is partnering with neighborhood children and adults, as well as local artists to transform a blighted lot into a place of beauty. Each Tuesday volunteers work with approximately 70 children on permanent art installations, take home art and the tending of the garden boxes. The space is an actual garden of artwork.

As our garden continues to grow, the Purple House was open in September 2014. This a place for our program to flourish during the cold winter months. At the Purple House we offer tutoring, small group art lessons, a studio space and after school clubs every day after school. As a faith based response to serving others, the Art Garden welcomes all people.
