Hancock Hall receives “2016 Arts Impact Life Award”

Several area organizations including Hancock Hall were honored Thursday morning, Oct.20, 2016,  at the 10th Annual ‘Business Supports the Arts’ breakfast. The awards breakfast is the nonprofit’s premiere fundraising event and celebrates the critical role that the arts play in the community.

Danbury’s Hancock Hall received the Art Impact Life Award. Under the direction of Jennifer Malone-Seixas, Hancock Hall brings art, culture and social enjoyment to those who live there. Hancock Hall is a partner with the Accessible Art Project presented by the Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut. “The impact on the lives of those who live at Hancock Hall and the staff that work there has been tremendous,” says Kathy Hehl Curran, Director of Admissions. “I feel like it’s like a ‘Museum’ came to Hancock Hall. Many of our residents are quite elderly and less mobile and would never have the opportunity to go to the museum or gallery to view the various artists works.”
