The Church mission and progress

Mission

The mission of the Sag Harbor Church (The Church) is to

foster creativity on the East End to honor the living

history of Sag Harbor as a “maker” Village.

 

The Church will champion new and traditional technologies 

 through collaboration, education and outreach.

The Church is operated by Edge and Center, Inc, a not-for-profit public charity, EIN # 84-1866415.

Progress

Although we have almost completed renovation of the deconsecrated Methodist Church as a creative resource, we hope that fall of 2020 may be a safe date for opening to the general public, depending on the pandemic. Artists-in-residence will be invited as soon as possible, and will be chosen by recommenders rather than by open submission. 

See our Plans page for more detailed information.

See our Behind the Scenes page for architectural progress reports from our architect Lee Skolnick.

OUR AMAZING HISTORY
