Westchester Community College is more than just the county’s largest educational institution. It is a living, breathing part of Westchester that goes beyond the influence of a typical college and affects the lives of all who enter its doors.


The Center for the Digital Arts, Peekskill extension, is celebrating 20 years of inno- vation and service. As part of recognizing its anniversary, the Center has amplified its mission of fostering access to arts technol- ogy education and has extended to partners throughout Westchester Community College and the county to echo STEAM. STEAM is Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics and advocacy for ascribing val- ue to the arts in and across education. Ad- vocacy for arts technology and the STEAM movement is nationwide and reflects the very purpose of opening the Center for the


Digital Arts in the downtown artist-district of the City of Peekskill in 1994.


Artists today create work that is reflective of our mashed-up, remixed, digital-visual culture. These 21st Century workers offer an opportunity for the viewer to confront our times: culturally, technologically, and spiritually. The history of arts and technol- ogy experimentation is vast and the Center for the Digital Arts is trying to honor that history and spark critical reflection about where this experiment has taken us today. The Center is committed to democratic arts education in the 21st Century and making its resources accessible to the communi- ty.


In this spirit, we have partnered with


ArtsWestchester which is launching an exhibition, STEAM and hosting a critical discussion forum, E.A.T. (Education, Art, Technology).
