The Silvermine Arts Center is an artist haven nestled in nature, offering an award-winning School of Art and Guild of Nationally Renowned Artists.
The Silvermine Arts Center is renowned throughout the artist community and attracts many tourists and art enthusiasts to New Canaan, Connecticut.
Artists have been drawn to Silvermine since 1908, when visionary sculptor Solon Borglum established it as a place for artists to gather. Founded in 1922 as the Silvermine Guild of Artists, the artists formally incorporated in 1924, and established the Silvermine School of Art. Today, the Silvermine Arts Center presents abundant opportunities for individuals of all ages to enjoy and learn about the arts. The award-winning Galleries are welcoming and free to the public offering more than 20 exhibitions annually.
Located in the historic Silvermine area (which incorporates parts of three towns – New Canaan, Wilton and Norwalk), the Silvermine Arts Center offers many robust classes, art camps, and galleries throughout the year that allow students, visitors, and faculty to work on projects, share ideas, explore new areas and grow in their understanding and immersion of the arts.
