The Connecticut Sports Foundation Fine Arts Program was founded in 2015 with the purpose of raising awareness for the visual arts as well as generating support for the Foundation's mission through the curation and sponsorship of public exhibitions, gala fundraising events as well as the donation of artwork from benefactors to the permanent collection of the Connecticut Sports Foundation. The art will be exhibited and viewed by cancer patients and those affected by cancer for aesthetic and therapeutic experiences.
The Connecticut Sports Foundation Fine Art Board is led by a formal subcommittee of three art world professionals possessing significant credentials and affiliations with Sotheby's, the Smithsonian Institution, the Library of Congress, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and the Museum of Fine Arts Boston among others.
