Vacant Downtown Hartford Storefronts To Get Creative Makeover

by Categorized: Uncategorized Date:

My colleague Jenna Carlesso reports:

The city of Hartford has been “awarded a $100,000 grant from the state to transform vacant downtown storefronts into “creative destinations,” such as retail or pop-up stores, a remote broadcast studio or an artist exhibition.”

    It’d be great if they could get some local artists to display their artwork for sale especially along Trumbull St by the XL Center.

    Oh that sounds like an interesting project! More urban murals and some green would deff lively the place, I would think.
