Find the Arts

In The Litchfield Hills

For decades, the Litchfield Hills has been a haven for artists who want to focus their creativity and produce work freely. This has naturally lead to the opening of an abundance of artists, galleries, music venues, theaters, and schools throughout the region.

Engaging the public in building a strong and connected arts and culture community that is integral to the economic development and the collective well-being of our region.
