THE ART EFFECT AT THE TROLLEY BARN GALLERY is the first youth-led gallery in the Hudson Valley, NY. Their mission is to train youth as leaders who catalyze the community through the arts and re-energize downtown Poughkeepsie. The iconic Poughkeepsie Trolley Barn puts youth in the drivers seat of this incredible space, empowering them to engage community members and visitors in transformative arts experiences that they curate along side established professionals.
In addition to youth-curated, international juried exhibitions, The Trolley Barn Gallery is home to a unique blend of workforce programming that brings together youth and established art professionals to present impactful exhibitions and festivals to engage our neighborhood and acquaint youth with curatorial and exhibitions practices.
CURATOR: Jaime Ransom
