Shippensburg Arts Programming & Education

Founded 1999

As a town grows both in population and in reputation it is only natural for an arts organization to emerge and take shape. Thus in 1999, SHAPE was founded when a few business owners, university faculty members and local artists got together. They recognized a need for an orgaization to promote the arts in Shippensburg. Since its inception, SHAPE has hosted close to 100 gallery exhibits, held hundreds of art classes, organized house tours, arts events, culminating with the creation of the annual Solstice Arts Festival.


Thank you to all who supoort us in our endeavor to enhance the cultural impact of Shippensburg. We continue to grow and evolve with the support and generousity of our members and local businesses. We look forward to continuing our current programs while expanding in the near future to meet the increasing demands of the arts scene in Shippensburg.
