This list was created with the intent of helping Central Art Students in a variety of ways. While many may have their hearts set on being artists, they may not know about the institutions and opportunities that they can take advantage of when establishing themselves. The CCSU Art Department believes that it is vital to expose yourself to all areas of art. Connecticut has hundreds of galleries around the state. There are countless museums, art centers and libraries that offer classes and will exhibit your art. We know it’s difficult to start out on your own. With this list we hope to offer some direction and insight in to Connecticut's art world.
