The arts are recognized for their unique ability to build community through creative human expression. As a year-round cultural center in rural Maine, Snow Pond expands on this concept by uplifting the entire Belgrade Lakes region through an inclusive economic strategy centered on creative placemaking. With our cultural, recreational, and educational assets, Snow Pond is simultaneously a tourist destination and pillar of the region’s quality of life that attracts and retains talent.
Maine’s creative sector provides a significant economic impact to the state, and in addition to this bottom line financial value, Thomas College is proud to acknowledge and support the Snow Pond Center for the Arts for its efforts to add richness and depth to the central Maine community. - - Thomas College, Waterville, Maine
