I-01118 We Are Artists Everyone: The Art Center in Action, 1970-1986

  • Organization Name:
    Bridgeport History Center, Bridgeport Public Library

  • Organization City:
    Bridgeport

  • Amount Awarded:
    $10511

  • Fiscal Year:
    FY18

  • Grant Summary:

    This project combines exhibition with public programming and hands-on instruction to tell the story of the Art Center, and the community it served from 1970 – 1986. By the time of its on-record closing of 1986, the Art Center had offered thousands of hours of art, photography, music and culinary instruction to city youth, adults, and senior citizens. The Art Center history is endangered in that there is no book, documentary, library archive or any other discrete medium in which its rich existence is recorded in full.
