Since its inception in 1971, the Stanley L. Richter Association for the Arts has hosted some of the most interesting events of the Danbury area cultural scene. These include lawn arts festivals, lectures, ethnic performances, and both classical and popular musical presentations. Each autumn, area artists exhibit their works in Richter's most prestigious event, the Annual Juried Art Show, to compete for large cash prizes.
Our programs are supported by grants from the Danbury Cultural Commission, corporate and individual sponsorships, audience admissions, and members' dues.
An enthusiastic Board of Directors, assisted by volunteers from the general membership, live up to the mandate provided by our mission. Nearly every weekend during the spring and fall, these dedicated individuals dish up a tempting cultural feast at Richter House for everyone's enjoyment.
The Association's mission, as explained by Irving Mahl, first president of Richter Arts, is to promote cultural affairs "in the broadest possible definition to include the visual arts, music, drama, handicrafts, dance, poetry, creative writing and all other activities that enrich the lives of civilized people."
