The West Hartford Art League is a 501(c)(3) arts organization that will be celebrating its 85th anniversary next year. We offer year round art instruction to artists of all ages, a summer camp every July for youth, and provide scholarships for underserved students. Our two galleries offer monthly exhibits that feature work by local and regional artists, and our exhibits are always free and open to the public. We started a public art program in West Hartford in 2008 that has placed sculpture throughout West Hartford in an effort to make art more accessible to all. 

Tickets to the event can also be purchased by calling the office during office hours (Monday – Friday 9 a.m.1 p.m.) at (860) 231-8019. CTEatsOut.com is the media sponsor for the event.
