Reception: Thursday, Oct 19, 4-6PM, Free

David M. Hunt Library, 63 Main Street, Falls Village, CT 06031, 860-824-7424, www.huntlibrary.org

In October, David M. Hunt Library will host Connecticut Academy For The Arts (CAFTA)'s ART BOMB: TOYMAKERS CAFÉ, an exhibit of young CAFTA art students' work inspired by the popular eatery run by Ann and Greg Bidou in Falls Village. The exhibit was conceived by Teresa and John Sullivan, co-founders of Connecticut Academy for the Arts, as an inter-community exchange between their students located in Torrington and the environs of the Bidou’s restaurant, which was recently hailed as a “burger and waffle oasis” by Connecticut Magazine.

"Our students enjoy making "Art Bombs" because it gives them an opportunity to learn more about diverse businesses and, at the same time use their talents to give back to various charities throughout the community. They have been working very hard on this project since early summer and have even written and recorded a song to go along with a puppet presentation inspired by Toymaker's Cafe. They are very excited about their newest Art Bomb at the Hunt Library, " said Teresa Sullivan. 
Artworks will include limited edition framed prints from a variety of media including painting, drawing, and mixed media. Subjects will include things readily seen at the café—motorcycles, corgis, customers, and coffee and everything Toymakers! 
A reception with refreshments for the artists will be held from 4pm to 6pm on Thursday, October 19. This event is free and open to the public. For more information call the library at 860-824-7424 or visit huntlibrary.org. For information about CAFTA visit www.cafta.info or call 860 201-5706.
