”We’ve been opening our doors for over 35 years and are still thrilled and look forward to sharing our work and lives with the community,” says LAA president, Lisa Cuscuna. “This is the largest cooperative of working professional artists in the area, so if you’ve never attended Open Studios please stop by and meet us….we all love to talk about our work.”
The Loft Artists pioneered the South End of Stamford setting up an artist colony in the old Yale & Towne Factory that now boasts state of the art apartments. They produced happenings, performances, tours and lectures that attracted thousands of people from the tri- state area. They taught workshops, gave demonstrations and opened their doors inviting the community to see the creative process first hand…. and now, 35 years later, although the future is uncertain, they continue their great outreach tradition and invite you to what has become known as Stamford’s greatest art experience.
The Loft Artists Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to building connections within Fairfield County’s visual arts community and exposing the general public to artists and their work. Their grassroots events attract thousands of visitors throughout the tri-state area and have been recognized by funding agencies, including the Connecticut Commission on the Arts, corporate and private sponsors, the City of Stamford and by visitors who return year after year.
