The Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut invites area artists to submit entries for the 2013 Accessible Art Project. The collaboration between the Cultural Alliance, participating venues, and selected artists is designed to increase opportunity for art in public spaces. It is also an opportunity to increase awareness with local businesses. Entries will be juried and selected for 2013 exhibitions at five locations: the Danbury City Hall Exhibit, CityCenter Danbury, Danbury Museum & Historical Society for a special exhibit to run Jan - March, ESCAPE to the Arts, and The Upstairs Gallery at Molten Java which will host several exhibits during the year. Electronic submissions will only be accepted. The deadline for entries is January 4th.

The Accessible Art Project has a simple goal: to offer visitors and residents a range of quality artwork, in a variety of casual, if not unusual, and friendly places. The Accessible Art Project welcome first-time art buyers and avid collectors to a juried selection of emerging and established artists with a variety of media, styles and subjects at a range of prices. The different venues help to eliminate barriers between the artist and the buyer, making art buying more accessible.

“The Accessible Art Project offered more than 25 exhibits in 2012 and approximately 700 people attended opening receptions,” says Lisa Scails, Executive Director of the Cultural Alliance. “The exhibits help to foster interaction and to build a community of artists and visitors, which strengthens community and the economy.”

All artwork is available for sale and exhibits rotate approximately every six (6) weeks throughout the year. Exhibit hours for the participating venues will be announced.
