Art at the Airport
The Cultural Coalition and Connecticut Airport Authority (CAA) have inaugurated an art in the airport program at Groton – New London Airport.
The program’s purpose is to showcase the region’s uniqueness, history, industry, culture and geography through visual arts in the airport’s main terminal located at 155 Tower Avenue in Groton.
Opening June 1 at Groton – New London Airport!
Life Without Limits Art Exhibit
United Cerebral Palsy of Eastern CT (UCP), a Waterford-based organization, will showcase pieces of art in a variety of mediums including mosaic, sculpture, and paint on canvas. The artists are individuals with disabilities who, along with staff UCP staff members, work together to create one piece of artwork annually to display at the Hygenic Open Art Exhibit.
This exhibit is a collection of work created over the years. All artwork is a collaboration between the people making the piece, from its initial conception to completion. Individuals participate in any way they can, whether making a choice about paint color using an eye gaze or physical participation using a hand over hand technique. The art program at UCP enables each person to express his or her unique talents in a manner that makes it accessible to them.
An artists reception will be held at the Groton – New London Airport on Monday, June 25 from 4pm to 6pm, in the airport’s main terminal located at 155 Tower Avenue in Groton. The public is welcome.
