Art Shows and Gallery Spaces

The Farmington Libraries Support Great Art

Farmington Libraries art shows are part of an initiative to foster an understanding in the community that Farmington Libraries represent not only high quality literature, learning, and entertainment, but also high quality art. These exhibitions gather together diverse local talent in one place, allowing for a broader and more nuanced view of what the Connecticut art scene has to offer.
