VISITING THE CENTER

Founded in 1987, The Amistad Center for Art & Culture is an independent not-for-profit cultural arts organization, housed at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art. Our two organizations – The Amistad Center for Art & Culture and the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art – are partners in a unique collaboration designed to inspire and bring enjoyment of art and culture to diverse audiences in Greater Hartford, the state of Connecticut, and the region. The Amistad Center manages a multi-disciplinary collection of fine art, photography, historical artifacts, memorabilia, and rare books that document the African American experience.
