CT Open House
Wesleyan Potters and Green Street Arts are participating in Connecticut’s Open House Day, June 13. This Saturday, Connecticut residents have a unique opportunity to create their own in-state getaway during the Connecticut Commission on Culture & Tourism’s annual Connecticut Open House Day.
From noon to 4 pm Wesleyan Potters, 350 South Main St., will be open for all to come in and try a craft. Demonstrations and free tours will be going on all afternoon. A small materials fee will apply for those wishing to make the jewelry project of the day or participate in a Raku firing. Free craft projects for children will be offered.
Visitors to The Green Street Street Art Center, 51 Green Street, from 1-4 pm can enjoy the annual free Arts Fest with performances and activities for all ages.
In addition to Wesleyan Potters and Green Street Arts, many of Connecticut’s attractions and tourism destinations, arts and cultural organizations, historic sites, shops and lodging properties will roll out the welcome mat to Connecticut residents with a variety of special incentives, such as discounted/free admission, free gifts and/or special exhibits and activities.
