Greater Hartford Arts Council presents the hottest new event to support the arts: The Art Social.

The Arts Council’s biggest fundraiser of the year gets a new name, a new season and a new twist! The Art Social will showcase how the arts are making an impact in our community, and highlight several amazing artists and organizations. Guests will enjoy signature food from Chef Tyler Anderson, a selection of craft cocktails, as well as beer and wine, all in a fun and vibrant atmosphere.

We will also be giving our inaugural Arts Inspiration Award to honor an individual and an organization that share our commitment to using the power of the arts to create a stronger community. The recipients demonstrate extraordinary leadership and dedication to supporting the arts and seek to inspire others to join their efforts.

Congratulations to Jeff Verney and United Technologies Corp., our 2019 Arts Inspiration Award honorees!
