The HealingNewtown art space has had a positive impact on our community and continues to provide programs that support resiliency and our path forward. The Connecticut Commission on Arts was instrumental in helping our CAC create this art space immediately after December 14th and continues to provide guidance. We are grateful for that expertise and commitment to our local arts effort”, Pat Llodra.
