Celebrate Creativity. Celebrate Hartford.
The Greater Hartford Arts Council and City of Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin have partnered to declare June, Hartford Arts Month. Hartford Arts Month is a joint, city-wide effort to emphasize the importance of the arts and celebrate creativity in the Capital City.
“Hartford has an incredibly rich and diverse community of artists working in every medium,” said Mayor Luke Bronin. “We hope everyone takes advantage of the hundreds of opportunities to watch, hear, and interact with our arts community during Arts Month. I want to thank the Greater Hartford Arts Council for recognizing the value of a strong art scene — and for working with us to bring these events under one banner and organize such a terrific month-long showcase of art in Hartford.”
“With hundreds of arts and cultural events taking place in Hartford during the month of June, it’s the perfect time to highlight the important impact the arts have on this community,” said Cathy Malloy, CEO of the Greater Hartford Arts Council. “We appreciate the Mayor’s partnership on this initiative and are proud to help raise awareness of the incredible events taking place every single day in Hartford.”
Everyone is invited to join in the celebration by visiting the Hartford Arts Month webpage, which includes hundreds of performances, exhibitions, classes, festivals and activities taking place throughout the month of June. For example, visitors will find event listings that include:
