East Hartford is preparing itself for the future. As Mayor Mike Walsh stated, we are "putting the shine back in East Hartford." In doing so, East Hartford understands the importance of investing in an aesthetically vibrant community. The town has partnered with nonprofit, RiseUP for Arts, to launch East Hartford Murals, a public/private partnership to create inclusive and accessible public art across the community. The partnership launched in 2022 with great success and an incredible pipeline of projects are in the works for 2023.
This partnership wouldn't be possible without the demonstrated commitment from community members and businesses in East Hartford. Over 120 individuals, businesses, and organizations donated to the first two East Hartford Murals' public art installations. You can continue to support the grassroots, transformational work happening in East Hartford by starting 2023 off with Tax-Deductible Donation. Help us "empower the community to imagine new possibilities".
Thank you & Happy New Years,
Harry Amadasun, President, East Hartford Murals
Matt Conway, Executive Director, RiseUP for Arts
