Art on the Streets
Call for Creativity! Art = Health
Deadline: March 24
Art on the Streets returns this spring, bringing artists and interactive artwork to the streets in downtown Hartford. The Greater Hartford Arts Council is once again partnering with Aetna to place artists in outdoors settings around downtown Hartford, drawing attention to the idea that art is all around us, connects us to one another, and makes our city more vibrant. This year, we’re also placing special focus on the relationship between art and health. Download the form for details and eligibility.
Through this program we aim to engage passersby with interactive artistic installations that connect them to the art, their community and to one another through the artistic process. In addition, we want to encourage them to participate in art for the benefits it brings to mental and physical health.
We invite you to participate in keeping Hartford healthy through Art on the Streets with this call for creativity! We’re looking for artists to imagine ways to bring art to the streets of downtown for all to enjoy. Art on the Streets will showcase various art forms, including visual, dance, and music!
