Photography by Pablo DelanoHartford Seen: Photographs by Pablo Delano

October 3, 2014 - March 14, 2015

Pablo Delano's contemporary documentary photographs of Hartford portray the city's public and private buildings, street scenes, and storefronts. This installation will reveal the history and growth of the city by showing the range and diversity of its built environment; from richly decorated businesses to historic structures to derelict factories. The photographs convey today’s economic and social realities as well as the city’s past and present triumphs as evidenced through the ingenuity and motivation of its people. Pablo Delano is a Professor of Fine Arts at Trinity College in Hartford. His work, including some examples of the images in the Hartford collection, can be found at pablodelano.com.

Drawings by Richard Welling(Re)Building Hartford: A City Captured by Artist Richard Welling

October 3, 2014 - March 14, 2015

Hartford’s urban landscape is always changing. Throughout the city’s history, buildings have been constructed, removed, and re-used, reflecting and shaping the city’s identity. Connecticut artist Richard Welling chronicled the ever-changing Hartford cityscape through detailed ink drawings. Acting as both works of art and documentary snapshots, these drawings reveal the additions and subtractions to and from the city's architectural skyline in the 1960s, 70s, and 80s. In this exhibit, CHS will explore how and why Hartford changed and how it affects us today.
