The NW CT Arts Council Culture Mix at Infinity Hall
Infinity Hall, the music venue in Norfolk, CT, that has gotten universal raves since opening last fall, co-hosted a “culture mix” for artists of every sort on April 29, with the Northwest Connecticut Arts Council, which was only established five years ago. The multifacted event was a kick-off to the CHAIRISH the Arts tour and auction and a reminder that anyone who wants to participate and paint a chair for display this summer and fall must register by May 15. The party was also a chance for the Infinity Hall Bistro, which opens May 1, to show off what its kitchen can do, and, happlily, it seems there is a skilled artist in the kitchen.
