The OACC is a non-profit group organized in 2006 and dedicated to sustaining and promoting the arts in our town and our region. A long-range goal is the conversion of a part of the Clark Building into an exhibition/performing space. Some of the recent projects of the OACC include the outfitting of The Gallery at Town Hall that features the work of local artists, and the “Hop the Bus” project that provides free transportation to the New Haven Symphony concerts, eliminating the hassle of finding convenient parking in New Haven.
Show your support of the efforts of the OACC by attending this event. All proceeds will go to the OACC and will contribute to the goal of enlivening the arts scene of our town. To top it off—it sounds like a rousing good time.
