Dear Friend and Supporter of Art League of New Britain.
It is with great pleasure that I relay the good news. The work has begun! Thanks to your contribution, along with funding from Mayor Erin Stewart and the City of New Britain, we are finally painting the exterior of the Art League’s historic home- the Carriage House. New Britain based Connecticut Painting. LLC. is now concentrating on repairing the windows and replacing shakes and clapboard, and come spring, will complete the long awaited work. This wasn’t possible except for your generosity. Thank you.
It’s time now to look forward. We have hired a historic architect to complete a $5000 Survey and Planning matching grant we received from the state. Once completed, we will be eligible for matching grants up to $50000 for improvements.
I am asking for your help in matching these grants so we can proceed with much needed items such as AC, security, handicap access bathroom, and expanding our capabilities in the stables and clay studio.
Our goal is to make our beloved Carriage House a better home in which the Art League of New Britain can carry out its mission: to create and foster artistic expression and endeavor in the greater New Britain community.
