Stamford and the LAA: 40th Anniversary

For this unique exhibit, Loft Artists Association members created work that is about, around, or made in Stamford and interprets and celebrates the artistic organization’s 40-year history in the historic south end. “We felt this was an important opportunity to honor our 40-year relationship with the city of Stamford,” said LAA co-director, Mark Macrides. “The LAA has been completely woven into the fabric of this city and as one of Stamford’s premier cultural organizations, we wanted to celebrate our dynamic city in this creative manner.” Work ranging from painting to photography and mixed media are exhibited. Most artist members of the organization are represented. The organization is proud and honored to be featured in the UCONN Stamford Gallery.
