Since it was founded in 1975, Real Art Ways has been the hub of cultural activity in Hartford and is widely regarded as one of the country's outstanding and versatile contemporary art spaces. It is a small, cozy venue with close links to the community. Catch an offbeat film, peruse the art gallery, attend a discussion, listen to terrific musicians, or play board games with friends. There is never a boring night at Real Art Ways. Sip on a drink from the bar while you mingle in the diverse crowd at Creative Cocktail Hour, an event deemed a rite of passage for many Hartford residents.
