Berkshires Beat: CATA to Break Ground on Future Home

CATA groundbreaking

Community Access to the Arts will hold a groundbreaking ceremony at the organization's future home at 420 Stockbridge Road on Monday, June 10, at 11 a.m. The new arts center will establish a permanent home for CATA and allow the organization to expand its innovative arts programs for people with disabilities.

"After 26 years of renting space, CATA will now have a true home--one that will double our existing space for artists with disabilities," said Margaret Keller, CATA's executive director. "With the growth we've achieved in recent years, we have been bursting at the seams. Now, after intensive planning, we are ready to take this pivotal step forward to give our CATA artists the space they deserve. We can't wait to share our plans with the wider community at the groundbreaking and in the months ahead."

The two-story, 6,400-square-foot facility will double the organization's existing studio space, with two new art studios— one for visual arts and writing, the other for dance and performing arts. CATA's new arts center will also embody the principles of Universal Design, making the facility accessible to every person. For the first time, the building will bring the organization’s studios and offices under the same roof.

Formerly the Renaissance Arts Center, the building will undergo an extensive renovation to prepare for its new life as the CATA Arts Center. Architects Clark & Green are leading the design of the renovation and Allegrone is managing construction. Construction is slated to begin in July, with the building opening in early 2020.
