Artpark & Company, Inc.



In 1997, Artpark & Company, Inc. entered into a three-year licensing agreement with the State of New York to manage the programming of the Park. This agreement has now been extended through 2017. Prior to this historic pact, Artpark was under the direction of the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation. Ownership of the property and facilities remains with New York State, which continues to maintain the buildings and the grounds.
