Snug Harbor is a springboard for artistry that is bold and unexpected, which reflects and celebrates the vibrant diversity of Staten Island.

As Staten Island’s leading incubator for bold and innovative art, Snug Harbor develops and presents the work of emerging and established artists and companies working across the visual arts, theater, music, dance and multimedia. Snug Harbor’s dynamic arts spaces range from the iconic Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art and the 686-seat historic Music Hall theater, to the flexible 75-seat Carpenter’s Shop, Outdoor Stage on the South Meadow, and indoor and outdoor performance spaces of varying scale. Experience the transformative power of the arts through interdisciplinary programming that activates the historical, cultural and environmental aspects of our campus.                             

Snug Harbor is proud to be Staten Island’s cultural anchor and incubator for creativity and community.

Snug Harbor arts programming is made possible through generous support from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Kathy Hochul and the New York State Legislature, Humanities New York, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, Con Edison – Arts al Fresco, Dance/NYC Rehearsal Space Subsidy, Howard Gilman Foundation and the Samuel I. Newhouse Foundation.
