While we are certainly celebrating our first 15 years, we will also be looking for to our next 15!  The Canal Dock Boathouse will be an exhibition of well-remembered projects, such as Leo Villarreal’s Chasing Rainbows|New Haven and Felice Varini’s Anomorphos. We will also be featuring upcoming work by Sheila de Bretteville and David De la Mano, as well as showcasing the video artwork of Site Project’s 2019 Public Art Fellows (PAF).

Site Projects|New Haven commissions world-class public art and produces cultural events that are always free and open to the public. We bring the people of New Haven together - citizens from all walks of life and from every neighborhood. It is in our mission to strive to meet our friends and neighbors and build our community in all its cultural richness and diversity. We carefully curate each of our projects to engage and stimulate critical conversations, all while remaining steadfastly non-sectarian and non-commercial. For every project, Site Projects also develops outreach programs that involve and uplift New Haven school populations - in order to excite a new generation of community thinkers and leaders. There are many ways to become involved with Site Projects and to support our efforts. We accomplish our missions only with the help of valued supporters like you. Please come to our anniversary party and meet with us, make a donation, or underwrite one of our projects! Let your community know how much you value our beloved New Haven. 

Thank you and remember, “15th on the 15th! Celebrate the Sound!” 1 to 6 pm at the Canal Dock Boathouse.
