Show Extended to mid-November!

About Open Air

Open Air is an outdoor art exhibition developed as a response to this unusual time of limited public activity. The artworks in the exhibition offer new vistas and opportunities for reflection, and we hope you will enjoy our campus as a thought-provoking space of community engagement and personal inspiration.

Open Air has two components: Open Air by Day, which presents sculpture and installation art on the grounds of UConn Avery Point, and Open Air by Night, which presents evening art film projections onto Branford House and the Avery Point Lighthouse.
