Since 2001, artists from around the globe have been coming to I-Park, an artists’ colony in East Haddam, to escape the workaday world and create art in a peaceful, inspiring setting. Nestled within a 450-acre nature preserve, I-Park provides fully-funded residencies to those working in the following creative fields: visual arts (including environmental art), music composition, creative writing, new media, architecture and landscape/ garden/ecological design.
The public is invited to register for FREE tickets to the Biennale Opening on September 18. View existing and eight new artworks on the land. You can also purchase tickets ($100 each) to our “Music Along the Trails” Fundraising Event on September 25 catered by G-Monkey.
