Arts Access Pass Program comes to Allegany County
The Allegany Arts Association is proud to be working with SheilaLynnK Art Studio to bring the Arts Services Inc. - ASI Arts Access Pass program to Allegany County, NY because: "Harnessing the power of our network and resources, ASI has been connecting Western New Yorkers to a wide array of arts and cultural programs and events through the Arts Access program since 2013. We believe that art is not a luxury but a necessity. The Arts Access program was created to remove the barriers that prohibit many Western New Yorkers from experiencing the arts, including cost, transportation, language, and effort.

Any individual or family who receives income based public assistance in WNY is eligible to apply. Arts Access passes can be used at any of our 45 partner locations, all of which believe that the arts belong to everyone. ASI will also provide safe and accessible transportation to and from partner events at the passholder’s request. Arts Access passholders can expect to be welcomed as we all work together to make WNY arts a more inclusive space." Find out more about the ASI Arts Access Program here:
