STATEWIDE, Conn. (Nov. 12, 2015) — Give the gift of creativity, culture, and adventure this holiday season through the Connecticut (CT) Art Trail’s Art Pass! A $75+ value, priced at only $25, the Art Pass grants pass-holders one-day admission to each of the 19 museums and historic sites that are part of the CT Art Trail within one year’s time.

This unique gift connects pass-holders to diverse, world-class art collections throughout Connecticut and is lined with places rich in history and heritage. Locals and travelers alike can now discover bucolic farms, art studios and former artists’ boarding houses of the countryside, as well as grand and modern art museums in vibrant downtowns. The Connecticut Art Trail celebrated its twentieth year in 2015, and now welcomes back the Lyman Allyn Art Museum of New London as its nineteenth member.

“We discovered many exciting art treasures and jewels, and enjoyed the opportunity to have this affordable overview of [Connecticut’s] riches,” said pass-holders Kay and Stephen of Long Island, NY.

The Art Pass is the ideal holiday gift, making for a valuable cultural experience over the course of one year, or to be explored within one Connecticut vacation.

About the Connecticut Art Trail

The Connecticut Art Trail is a nationally recognized partnership between nineteen world-class museums and historic sites, created to promote Connecticut’s rich cultural assets as part of a travel experience.

 

The Trail was launched in 1995 as the Connecticut Impressionist Art Trail, celebrating Connecticut’s ten museums and historic sites that highlighted American Impressionism. In 2005, the member museums voted to expand its membership beyond Impressionism to include even more quality museums and historic sites, increasing the membership to nineteen today. This strategic initiative was accomplished in order to reach a broader audience and showcase the diversity of collections within the state. The Connecticut Art Trail also offers the Art Pass, granting visitors one-day access to each museum along the trail for a small fee. More information about the Art Trail can be found online at www.ctarttrail.org and on facebook.com/CTArtTrail.
