The programs at Franklin Street Works are explorations of creative projects that inspire contemporary art enthusiasts to come together in conversation.

Exhibition Programming

Exhibition programming expands on the art space’s original shows through a closer look at the art on view, stimulating conversations surrounding the exhibition’s theme. For our exhibition programming, Franklin Street Works connects communities with artists, curators, and innovative cultural producers via free public workshops, performances, and talks. These efforts elucidate each exhibition by going more deeply into its intentions and adding discursive content through educational and social interactions.

Exhibition programs include artists’ presentations, tours, performances, and hands on activities, such as artist Emily Larned’s book binding workshop. Notable participatory performances include Trisha Baga’s “The Garden Party” — where the public joined in the artist’s parade from Franklin Street Works to the Landmark Square building in Downtown Stamford, Connecticut; and David Horvitz’s “Honey Locust Tree Relocation” project where participants from Connecticut and New York carried more than thirty Honey Locust tree saplings from Clocktower Gallery in New York City to their new home at Franklin Street Works. Generative, cross-disciplinary programs are another way Franklin Street Works explores the relevance of contemporary art, such as the 2013 exhibition-inspired poetry reading and zine featuring texts by UConn, Stamford, writing students.
