Impact. Partner. Create.

Our mission is to seek to positively impact our community by partnering with artists, individuals, and organizations to create meaningful programs, events, and opportunities. As a center for diversity, culture, and civic life in a small town, The Stissing Center aims to support local economic revitalization and job creation in Pine Plains and the surrounding Hudson Valley region.

Our Story

The Stissing Center is actively restoring the 1915 born, brick building back to life. The main hall, upstairs, has been revived into a beautiful, rustic-chic performance space with an accessible glass entryway, flexible floor plans, and rebuilt proscenium stage. With continued donor support, the lower level will be transformed into The Cellar at The Center, an intimate second performance and gathering space. We will host more intimate gatherings, meetings, films, as well as private and community events. The lower level will also include a kitchen and bar area.


A creative, engaged, diverse, connected and thriving community of Pine Plains and the region, rooted in authenticity, discovery, celebration, critical and creative thinking and cultural awareness.
