Waterfall Arts was founded in 2000 as the Arts Center at Kingdom Falls on an expansive 11 acre rustic site in Montville, Maine. The founders and area artists came together to offer local arts experiences for all ages and skill levels inspired by the natural beauty of the woods, streams, ponds, and waterfalls on site. In 2005, the Mayor and City Council of Belfast, looking to re-purpose its 1935 Anderson Elementary School, encouraged Waterfall Arts to expand from Montville and establish a year-round arts center in downtown Belfast. Today, Waterfall Arts is a vibrant, nonprofit, community art venue committed to its mission “to create community in harmony with nature through the transformative power of the arts.”
Now the most comprehensive community arts center in Waldo County, Waterfall Arts offers resources to students, professionals, and arts enthusiasts of all ages, including art classes, exhibitions, events, performances, open media-specific studios (clay, print, and photography), free and low cost after school art programs, public art projects, long-term studio space to artists and teachers, and short-term rental facilities to artists, performers, and other organizations.
