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.

The Southeastern Connecticut Cultural Coalition and the CAA sought arts or community organizations, with desire and ability to take advantage of an off-site exhibit space that engage new audiences, and who voluntarily partner in this endeavor. (For more information, click HERE.)
We are proud to announce that the 2018 calendar for exhibits is full!   PRESS RELEASE

John Meyer of Norwich: An American Original

The Slater Memorial Museum of Norwich Free Academy presents John Meyer of Norwich: An American Original.  Throughout Connecticut and beyond, women fondly remember John Meyer of Norwich.  Now considered classics of 20th Century design and function, his line of clothing featured everything from “Bermuda” shorts to preppy A-line skirts, Argyle to Fair Isle sweaters.  John Meyer of Norwich was an innovator in fashion for an emerging demographic of career women and college girls.  Working with other technological innovators, he revolutionized the garment manufacturing process, introducing cutting-edge methods still used today.  In addition, John Meyer’s factory and design business provided employment to dozens of Norwichians.  The exhibited panels reveal the person and the company.
