Review for Artspace, Inc., New Haven, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

A non-profit gallery that focuses on presenting both local and international works of contemporary art, Artspace is very close to my heart in the service that it provide to the greater public: firsthand experience with, and education about, the arts, regardless of patrons’ social or economic classes.

As a volunteer gallery sitter at Artspace, I was able to take part in Artspace's wealth of different programs, from art openings to artist workshops to educational outreach programs for teens. I found these experiences very rewarding -- discussing the idea of the contemporary still life with an exhibiting artist, or seeing children's eyes light-up as you explain to them that they're allowed to interact with an art piece, are both wonderful feelings.

Artspace’s various opportunities for children and young adults exemplify the kind of programs that we need to further promote and expand the fine arts.
