In addition to supporting local programs of the Jewish Federation of Ulster County, Fall for Art continues its tradition of selecting a local organization each year to receive our “Special Recipient” gift of $1,000 worth of artwork from the event for permanent display at their facility, thereby benefiting the participating artist(s) as well.


The Kingston Library will select art from the show to be permanently exhibited at the Franklin Street facility.  Since 1899, the Kingston Library has been dedicated to supporting and enriching the intellectual and creative lives of area residents. The mission of the Kingston Library is to be a vital center in our diverse community that inspires lifelong learning and empowers our citizens by providing free and equal access to information, ideas, books, and technology. Located in the heart of Kingston, the Library is a vibrant city hub where people of all ages and interests come to seek information, gain knowledge, exchange ideas and share experiences. The library strives to be a welcoming place where any interested individual can access a broad spectrum of literature, information and entertainment, experience art, attend workshops and performances, make use of computers and a wireless network, or simply enjoy the camaraderie of coming together in a shared space.
