Support Community Arts Programming

Kehler Liddell Gallery (KLG) is currently working to expand gallery programming with a yearly schedule of community arts programs and events for children, young people, adults and families in the greater New Haven region. Artists will lead monthly story-time events, family movie nights, portfolio review days, artist talks, workshops, demos and more. An apprenticeship program will be established for students seeking to gain experience in a retail gallery. We are also actively seeking partnerships to activate the gallery in new and exciting ways and to offer more artists the opportunity to share in our space for creative expression. 

To produce these programs, we are partnering with The ArtEcon Initiative, a new neighborhood-based non-profit. We are thrilled to announce our team has been awarded a 2017 Mayor's Neighborhood Cultural Vitality Grant. Our next fundraising step is an Indiegogo campaign, launching on February 11th, 2017, that features an online sale of artwork and a number of curated brunches and cocktail parties at the gallery. Here you will find images of available artworks and menus for curated events. We hope you will join us as we embark on an enlivened mission to grow our community and inspire the next generations of creative thinkers.

Programs made possible with support from the City of New Haven's Mayor's Community Arts Grants Programs.
