An evening to support arts education!
Wednesday, June 7 | The Governor's Residence | 5:30PM - 8PM
The Greater Hartford Arts Council invites you to our Summer Soirée at the historic and beautiful Governor's Residence to support Neighborhood Studios, our arts education program for local teens. Mix and mingle as you enjoy sparkling wine, delicious food, and hear from special guest speaker!
Why Support Neighborhood Studios?
During the six-week summer apprenticeship program, students receive hands on instruction in an artistic medium, as well as career skills training to prepare them for today’s creative workplace. Each apprentice also receives a weekly stipend so they don’t have to choose between a quality arts education and a summer job. Please help make their summer of arts education possible!
About the Governor's Residence
Built in 1909, the Governor's Residence was originally built for Hartford physician and industrialist George C.F. Williams by the Boston-based architectural firm Andrews, Jacques & Rantoul. Since then, the Georgian Revival style mansion has undergone several renovations by The Conservancy, a nonprofit organization, to preserve and restore its historic aesthetic. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
