Opening Reception: Park River Tool Kit by Nomad/9 MFA.
This exhibition catalogues the process of the students’ work with artist/faculty Mary Mattingly to create a public art project for Hartford inspired by the Park River. The Park River’s North Branch runs through campus before being engineered to run beneath Downtown Hartford. This river has served as inspiration for an ongoing blog, individual artworks, activities based on co-education and learning, and a Fluxus-inspired toolkit that encourages a deeper engagement with rivers. Nomad/9 MFA: Interdisciplinary, is a low-residency program at Hartford Art School, focusing on sustainable culture and cross-disciplinary art practices. The exhibition will be on view through Saturday, June 30.

Current Exhibitions:
John Kelly: Sideways into the Shadows [on view through 6/24]
Andrew Buck: Quarry [extended to 7/1]

Community. Connections. Creativity.
