Answer: Woodstock in NY
The most famous small town in America is Woodstock, NY? Many people think that the 1969 Woodstock Festival was the beginning of Woodstock being known as the ”Colony of the Arts” but that festival was just one event in a long history of creativity in the Catskills for over a century. In 1902 a utopian community was founded on 1200 acres in Woodstock New York as a mecca for artists to live and work communally. It is now called The Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild and its purpose 100 years later is the same. Today there are 33 of the original 35 Arts and Crafts style buildings that made up the colony and are set on 250 acres. Byrdcliffe comes alive in summer with residencies for artists. Byrdcliffe houses and fosters the creativity of its artists in their private studios. Some of the cottages are available for rent year round but most are seasonal, the caveat is, you must be a working artist to live in Byrdcliffe. Scholarships are available for the artists in residence program since the primary goal of the colony is to foster and subsidize expenses for the creative spirit. Byrdcliffe supports both visual and performing artists.
