The Connecticut Historical Society has a new exhibit on display.

Passing It On: Traditional Arts Apprenticeships

January 18 – March 10, 2018

A unique regional program marks twenty years of heritage education activities with a new exhibit at the Connecticut Historical Society. Over twenty years the Southern New England Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Program has supported 142 accomplished artists to teach a folk or traditional art form to qualified students through the classic apprenticeship model of regular, informal but intensive one-on-one learning over several months, even years.

The exhibit will display the work of masters and apprentices from the broad range of ethnic and occupational groups that have participated over the years. Photographs of artists and their artistic process, quotes relating their experiences and the outcomes of their work, and demonstrations and performances will accompany the exhibit
