Help us pick our exclusive 2013 United Arts Print!

Every year, the Arts Council commissions a local artist to create an exclusive, one-of-a-kind piece of art to represent the unique character of our community. Donors who give $500 or more receive a limited-edition print of the final artwork as a thank-you for investing in the arts. This year, YOU get to pick the United Arts Campaign print.

The creative team at Hartford Prints!, a local letterpress studio, has developed three concepts reflecting some of Hartford's most beloved pieces of public art. YOU decide which one wins.

1 Stegosaurus

Alexander Calder's Stegosaurus sculpture on Burr Mall between the Wadsworth Atheneum and City Hall. From Hartford Prints!: "One of the best aspects of this sculpture is seeing it peeking through the trees."



2 Mark Twain

Abstract art meets an American literary classic in front of the Hartford Public Library. From Hartford Prints!: "The juxtaposition of lines and shapes of these figures is just fascinating."


3 Art in Hartford Map

A graphic representation of Hartford's geography highlighting important pieces of public art around the city. From Hartford Prints!: "The idea behind this piece is to layer several pieces of public art on an abstract city map."
