Thomaston Artist, Pat Piscopo, has started her 2nd bee for “Bees Across New Britain”.

Last Tuesday, May 12, 2019, several of the fully dressed Bees (including Pat’s 1st Bee) were unveiled in Central Park in front of City Hall, New Britain. The remaining bees (including Pat’s 2nd Bee shown here) will appear in the Park as they are completed by the artists.


Late June, 2019: There will be a “Bees Across New Britain Celebration” with the auctioning of four of the creatures. After the celebration, the remaining Bees will make their way to sponsor locations throughout the City where they will remain on display.

Field Trip to the New Britain Museum of American Art

The New Britain Museum of American Art was founded in 1903, it is the first museum in the country dedicated to American art.

Special Exhibit:
The Beyond: Georgia O'Keeffe and Contemporary Art

We had a wonderful time enjoying the enormous flowers, luscious colors, desert landscapes, feminine forms, and still lifes (…and lunch at Angelo's Market).
