THE ARTS COUNCIL ANNOUNCES NEW OFFICE SPACE AT 70 AUDUBON ST.
Community Foundation Rents Space Previously Occupied by Arts Council
New Haven, Connecticut – The Arts Council of Greater New Haven has moved its headquarters at 70 Audubon Street to another suite of offices across the hall on the 2nd floor, previously rented to and occupied by Connecticut Public Radio. The Arts Council owns the second floor of the building and had occupied the previous space since the building was constructed in 1990.
“Vital government funding for the arts in Connecticut is at an all-time low,” said Daniel Fitzmaurice, Executive Director of The Arts Council. “This change represents a fiscal and programmatic opportunity to expand our mission to serve artists, creative organizations, and our region. I can’t wait to start the renovation!” The new space will include administrative offices and community venue, which Arts Council members can reserve at no cost for meetings, performances, and events.
As of Dec. 1, 2017, The Arts Council has rented their previous space to The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven. “We have enjoyed a great relationship with our neighbors at The Arts Council for many, many years and can trace our support back to 1966 when we awarded them their first grant to broaden access to the arts,” said Angela Powers, Senior Vice President of Planning and Operations at The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven. “This is another win-win opportunity.”
The Arts Council of Greater New Haven is a regional nonprofit arts agency that provides leadership to and advocates for member artists and arts organizations and connects them to one another, to audiences, and to the Greater New Haven community.
