The mission of the New Canaan Society for the Arts is to promote the visual and performing arts, to enrich the community through exhibitions, education, and cultural experiences, and to operate the Carriage Barn Arts Center. The Carriage Barn Arts Center offers artists opportunities to exhibit their work in a beautiful gallery space in a unique nineteenth-century stone barn. Exhibits, lectures and educational workshops, concerts and other events are held in our adaptively re-used historical building on the grounds of a former estate, now Waveny Park.
As a non-profit organization we rely on the generosity of our donors to operate and provide services to the community.
Your support is greatly appreciated.
