Hygienic Art is is a leader in progressive action in the arts. Initiatives started by the organization have led to the creation of an annual show that now features nearly 500 artists, the redevelopment of an historic building in the heart of downtown New London, creation of a year-round gallery space and arts cooperative, as well as the building of the gorgeous Art Park that now plays host to a wide array of community events and concerts.

The Hygienic Art Gallery, and especially the Hygienic Art Show, in late January-early February each year, is the highlight of this small city. The Art show permits anyone to hang one piece (and only one piece) of art work. There are some fabulous pieces in each show, some humorous, some political, outrageous, etc. Well worth seeing.

this was once a busy local late night diner. the gallery has helped to revitalize down town New London. It is eclectic and hip. Check out the bank street scene. It's pretty fun these days.

The Hygienic is not simply an art gallery, although it is that as well. There are wonderful musicians performing regularly In the outdoor park during the summer and plenty of opportunities to party.This place Is a mainstay in New London!

Went for a concert in the park. Tables and chairs sprinkled in between trees and bushes. Good sound system and sight lines. A summer concert outside with a bar was fun and we would return for another.

Kudos to the Hygienic Arts Gallery. They are the leaders of the movement to bring local and cutting edge out of region art to the area. With various events throughout the year and now a wonderful Arts Park adjacent to the Gallery Hygienic is here to stay and thanks for that! Check out the website for various showings and events....
