There is only one word that can describe summertime at Norte Maar… EPIC! From our early years mounting summer ballets in an empty ice skating rink in Rouses Point to our current exhibition of clay in the mountains of the Adirondacks, summertime has always played an enormous role in our collaborative energy and programming.
