Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame Inductees Portrait Exhibit

The Inductee Portrait Exhibit is a beautifully executed collection of framed images and biographies honoring Connecticut women, past and present, women of great achievement who have broken new ground or have emerged as leaders in their fields of endeavor. The exhibit consists of 65 framed black-and-white portraits of CWHF Inductees (1994-2002). Each portrait is accompanied by a short biography of the Inductee. It is elegant and eye-catching in its simplicity and makes a wonderful addition to Hartford Public Library’s other ongoing exhibits and programs honoring work and women in Connecticut.

Opening Reception

Please join us on Thursday, March 27, 2014, at 5:00 p.m. to celebrate this new exhibition in the ArtWalk at Hartford Public Library, located in the heart of the city at 500 Main Street.

About the ArtWalk

ArtWalk at Hartford Public Library offers one of the largest and most stunning exhibition spaces in greater Hartford and the opportunity for visitors to view art in a magnificent setting in their own community.  The state-of-the art gallery rises above Main Street along a glass wall that floods the space with ambient light during the day and appears to glow as a jewel box at night. Exhibitions offer an array of art experiences that reflect a variety of media, styles, and cultures in the art world, providing diverse viewing experiences, and allowing for many tastes.  Because of the unusual cable system in place, one of the most unique aspects of the ArtWalk is that any wall and lighting configuration or arrangement can change with the nature of every new exhibition.  The ArtWalk is made possible through the generosity of donors, especially the Beatrice Fox Auerbach Foundation Fund at Hartford Foundation for Public Giving.
