The Hamden Department of Arts and Culture is currently seeking Artists, Writers, Photographers, Graphic Designers, Poets, Illustrators or any creative-minded Hamden resident that would like to participate in our "Hamden Has H-Art" exhibition. We are asking participants to share their messages of care, including physical distancing, washing your hands, staying home, and checking in on seniors and neighbors, to name a few. The messages can take the form of art, quotes, poems, collages, or any medium that you can transfer to your computer and send to us electronically, to honor our very own frontline heroes, doctors, nurses, EMTs, police, fire, grocery store workers, custodians, transportation, food delivery and postal workers, teachers, loved ones, and more. We are asking the Hamden art community to share their inspiration for these heroes with an online exhibition that will be broadcast on the Town of Hamden’s Arts and Culture website and social media. Images selected will be highlighted daily and viewers will be given the option to print the images on their own computers or share electronically. Through the eyes of our fellow Hamdenites we are hoping to capture the spirit of the incredible community or caring, hardworking, creative and resilient people that make up our Town of Hamden. Our office will print all the images from the online exhibition and display them in a group show in Hamden Memorial Town Hall in 2021. Submissions being accepted until May 31st.
Please show you have H-Art and let our heroes know how you feel!
