In 2016 we created a Collaborative Community Art piece funded by the 2016 Neighborhood Cultural Vitality Grant Program. This piece was created by combining numerous canvases, created in the collaborative art corner, of the 2016 Fair Haven Family Stroll & Festival by attending community members. Through this work, we celebrate Equality, Peace, Simplicity, Integrity, Stewardship, and Community, and our love for New Haven. We hope you enjoy all the amazing canvases created at our festival, each one a masterpiece in itself.
