The Unison Theater is a 30′ x 30′ open space that we use for concerts and workshops, and sometimes for meetings and meals. The building was originally a barn, but we renovated it extensively in the 1990s, adding rest rooms and a kitchen, both available for concerts today.
We have a modular stage system, with 8 square sections, 4′ x 4′ x 1′, and two triangular sections. For concerts this is usually set up in a corner, with the chairs fanning out across the room.
We have 90 upholstered chairs for the audience, that conveniently stack for easy set-up and take-down.
Unison’s gallery uses the same space as the theater. It has about 90′ of wall space for display of flat works and small, wall-mounted sculpture.
The Sculpture Garden opened in 1999 thanks to the vision and support of Denny Cooper and Sarah Gewanter, long-time Unison mentors. Now it has about 50 sculptures on its 5 acres.The sculptures mostly come and go (although we do have a few in our permanent collection), but a constant feature is the Labyrinth, which serves as a platform for sculpture, and as a meditation aid.
The entrance to the garden is marked by a large Torii gate, built by Michael Friedman. A smaller gate marks the entry from one field to another. And then there are the critters that we share the garden with, that you can sometimes see when you are very quiet and still.
Call the office at 845-255-1559 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be glad to talk to you about our availability and price, and your needs. Please remember that our own events must take priority in scheduling our facility.
