From 2014-2020, Sarah Fritchey served as the Artistic Director for New Haven's City-Wide Open Studios festival, creating a theme that united artists, audiences, and presenting partners around a set of timely sociopolitical ideas that positioned artists as essential contributors to civic and private life and the natural world. Each year, Fritchey worked with 10-12 Connecticut-based artists, selected from a juried open call, to develop and debut their proposals during the run of the festival.
