Hoyt Center for the Arts

124 East Leasure Avenue
New Castle, PA 16101


Once considered New Castle's "best kept secret", the word is out on the Hoyt Institute of Fine Arts and its vision to "provide the best possible arts to the greatest number of people"! This thriving regional arts center and museum, once home to the Hoyt family, now houses more than 50 arts classes and workshops, 24 annual exhibits, annual cultural festivals, and school programs in two stately 1917 mansions on five acres of New Castle's residential north hill.

Our Mission: To encourage an awareness, understanding, appreciation and practice of the Arts & Humanties through visual, educational, and enrichment programming for learners of all ages.
