Fall 2021 Workshop 
with Marie Saint-Cyr


2021 Sessions are closed. Thank you for your interest!


On this episode of Economically Speaking Town of Babylon IDA CEO Tom Dolan sits down with Liz Mirarchi, Executive Director of the Babylon Citizens Council on the Arts ("BACCA"). The pair discuss BACCA's new business education for artists program.

Fall 2021 Session was generously sponsored in part by Alice Cromarty 

and held in partnership with the Huntington Arts Council.


Marie received a BFA in Fine Arts and a minor in Art History from the Fashion Institute of Technology. In 2018, Marie participated in The Downtown Brooklyn Arts Management Fellowship, a collaboration between four prominent Brooklyn arts and culture organizations, where she learned about core areas of arts management, including Development, Marketing/Community Engagement, Education, Curatorial/Programming, Production/Tech, and Administration/Finance.

As a Haitian immigrant, Marie was deeply impacted by various art cultural organizations through their free workshops and educational programs. These experiences not only enabled her to learn to express herself through art, but also to become very interested in the work it takes to make these programs happen.

Saint-Cyr Art Studio was born out of Marie’s passion for art, education, business and her desire to give back to her community.
