Inside the walls of this historic landmark, art, music, dance and theatrical performances work to promote tolerance.
– The Scene
Located on the southern edge of downtown Hartford in what was the state's first synagogue, the center promotes the arts and humanities through educational, visual and performance programs. Its mission is to assist in revitalizing the urban scene through "tolerance and freedom of expression." The first floor is devoted to gallery space, while the second floor is a performance area housed in the spot where synagogue services used to take place. Today, the same pews seat the audience.
The center is passionately devoted to using the arts to educate children about various cultures. Past performances have included a Native American storyteller, a Hispanic circus and an African-American dance company. A permanent wall display documents Jewish life during the late 19th- and early 20th-century in Hartford with photographs and text.
