The Golden Thread Gallery, with the mission of connecting the human spirit through the arts, began presenting meaningful work in 2013. The Golden Thread Gallery exhibits professional and emerging artists from various backgrounds and welcomes all mediums. By displaying a collection of various perspectives on a common theme, we reveal how art can creatively illustrate the diversity of the human condition. Our name, The Golden Thread, represents the invisible, underlying connection that weaves together the spirit of humanity – through the arts. To date we have had over 350 artists from all over the world exhibit their work at the gallery.
The Golden Thread gallery has recently expanded their work to create meaningful public art projects that improve the quality of community life, encourage neighborhood engagement, and better define place-based identity and culture. The Golden Thread has completed multiple successful community art projects in Hartford. Through this work The Golden Thread provides many opportunities for a broad and inclusive group of people to experience and engage with art in the community.
