Connecticut - Music and Performing Arts
With world-famous museums of art, architecture and rare books at Yale University and other institutions, New Haven is the ideal destination for an arts-filled weekend. One opportunity to combine art with easy socializing is the city’s artspot. Popular with young professionals and artists, this program of special events sponsored by the Arts Council is apt to take place anywhere—on a rooftop, in a museum, in a park—and gate crashers are welcome. Artspace is another option in New Haven as a center for contemporary art with exhibits and events that are free and open to the public.
