Celebrate Hartford's Immigrant Artists!

Thursday, February 20th

5:00 p.m. Naturalization Ceremony

6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. Artists Reception

Hartford Public Library, 500 Main Street


Hartford Public Library invites you to attend two very special events celebrating significant accomplishments in the lives of Hartford's immigrant community!


The evening will begin at 5:00 p.m. in the Library's Ground Floor Atrium, 
with a Naturalization Ceremony for Greater Hartford residents who will see their dreams realized 
as they become American citizens.



Immediately following the ceremony, please join us for an opening reception for

 "We Belong Here Hartford," an art exhibit celebrating the lives and artwork of professional immigrant artists and students from Hartford Public Schools.


Originating from many different countries, these artists have found freedom and expression 

in the Greater Hartford community. Their work is also featured in the new book, 

Freedom Dreams: We Belong Here Hartford, published by the Library, 

which will be unveiled during the reception.


Please join us for what promises to be a heartwarming and truly memorable evening!


Please RSVP to 860-695-6334 or hnaficy@hplct.org




In the event of a Library closure due to inclement weather, the event will be held Thursday, February 27.
