Photography by Pablo DelanoHartford Seen: Photographs by Pablo Delano

October 2014 - January 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 WellingHartford Changes

October 2014 - January 2015

Connecticut artist Richard Welling is known for chronicling the ever-changing Hartford landscape through his expansive and highly detailed ink drawings of the city. Acting as both works of art and documentary snapshots, these drawings help reveal the additions and subtractions of the city's architectural skyline throughout the 1970s. Welling also traveled the East Coast to draw other locations, including New York City. He also taught drawing classes throughout Hartford County and published guidebooks on the techniques of drawing buildings. Welling's prints, studies, and drawing instruments were donated to CHS in 2012.

Maps from the Connecticut Historial Society collectionMaps from the CHS Collection

August 2015 - January 2016

Maps communicate and condense information graphically and help us understand where we came from, how we got here, where people live and why, and how and why change happened. Maps support learning and scholarship in practical ways, as evidence of commerce, migration, urbanization, transportation and in theoretical or philosophical ways, as evidence of nation building and state identity, art and imagery, and ownership. This exhibit will feature a range of wonderfully detailed maps from the CHS collection.
