A project funded by the ACAE was recently mentioned on the Channel 10 News! Click here to see the video.

ACAE is a not-for-profit organization whose sole mission is to support fine arts, theatre and musical performance by students in the schools of the city of Albany. It is governed by a board with members drawn from the arts, academic and business communities. Board members serve without compensation.

Members of the larger community can participate in several ways: by becoming Patrons of the organization, by contributing art for ACAE's periodic auction events, by participating in these auctions, and by serving as members of ACAE's board. All contributions are fully tax-deductible.

Teachers in the Albany city schools are invited to submit grant proposals for projects in art, theatre or music.


Current ACAE Board members:

  • Robert LaRocca (President)
  • Benjamin Chi
  • Jason Kurant
  • Wes Bennett
  • Jay Larson
  • James Vitalo
  • Richard Vitkay
  • Nancy Wawrla
