The Catamount Arts building on Eastern Avenue has temporarily closed for environmental remediation. Indoor programming will be interrupted, though some offerings will be relocated to the Catamount ArtPort at the Green Mountain Mall. Outdoor programming will continue as scheduled.
Environmental pollutants were discovered during air quality testing ordered by Catamount Arts as part of due diligence in preparation for the expansion of their Eastern Avenue campus. Elevated levels of trichloroethylene and tetrachloroethylene, the same pollutants revealed by testing in recent years at other Eastern Avenue and Federal Street locations, were reported by Stone Environmental late last week. Catamount Arts was already scheduled to close for a staff retreat when air quality contaminants were reported.
Remediation plans are still developing and will probably require further testing. In the meantime, the building will remain closed. Please stay tuned to www.catamountarts.org to learn about changes to indoor programming.
Outdoor programming and programming at off-site venues such as York Street Meeting House and the ArtPort will remain unchanged. The 24/7 Online box office is open! Box office staff are available in person and by phone at our Railroad Street location in the Caplan’s Building. Box office hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 am to 6 pm.
Thank you for your patience!
