Frequently Asked Questions

What is this, exactly?
You’ll weave your way up a small green mountainside to arrive at a series of old houses and structures. You’ll park. You’ll either pick up or purchase a ticket. You’ll go inside a dark, 1903, hand-built home that has seen better days. You’ll move through small rooms, grand rooms, narrow hallways, and creaky staircases, sometimes peaking through hazy windows or through wooden balusters. You’ll witness a story unfolding, you’ll get a couple of treats to munch. If you have mobility concerns or food restrictions you’d like us to know about, feel free to be in contact with us directly (just use the form at the bottom of the page).

Do I need to reserve a ticket?
It would be really great if you did. Click here.
But you don’t have to.  You can always buy a ticket at the show. Just make sure to show up by 6:15 so we can make sure to get you all set. Cash only, please.

What should I bring?
Cash, comfortable shoes, layers, a friend, an umbrella/rain jacket, a curious mind, a small appetite.

What should I NOT bring?
Dogs, your fancy shoes, cellphones that have been neglected to be silenced.

Is this appropriate for children?
Maybe. Here are some things to consider: You’ll be taken through various rooms and spaces inside of a large, old house. This show involves a large, masked creature that some children may find frightening. The story may not resonate with children under 10. It will likely prove difficult (though not impossible) for those of you with wee ones to leave the show mid-way through should your kiddo be fussy.

What time is it, again?
6:30 PM on Sunday, May 25th.

Where is it held and what’s the best way to get there?
Byrdcliffe Art Colony in Woodstock, NY. The performance begins at White Pines (located at 454 Upper Byrdcliffe Way). Click here for transportation details. If you are driving, park along the road. If you are taking the bus into Woodstock, let us know when you will be arriving and we will coordinate transportation to and from the bus station (just use the form at the bottom of the page).

How long is it?
The performance runs approximately 90 minutes, travels throughout a series of spaces, and includes specially curated food along the way. You are welcome to stay and linger over our final feast for as long as you want after the show! For those of you catching the 8:00 PM bus back to NYC, just let an ARTBARN person know before the show starts and we’ll make sure you get shuttled back to town in time for the bus.

How much does it cost?
Tickets are $25. Kids are pay-what-you-can. If you are able to be generous, please do! We’d like to keep making art here!

What is this, again?
A new piece inspired by the Collyer brothers (the notorious hoarders of Harlem), an exploration of the psychology of labyrinths, and a story of the lengths we’ll go to hide from ourselves. To get a feel of the piece ARTBARN made last year, “This is a Ghost House,” watch this 75-second video.
