The Hispanic Center of Greater Danbury, Inc. has always been at the forefront of community diversity and inclusion, and, true to its mission, it is now celebrating its first Art-for-All.  The Art-for-All is a project of accessibility and exposure to the arts in the Greater Danbury area and will include three gallery venues, three opening receptions and three $500 best in show prizes to showing artists.
