The New Canaan Society for the Arts is a member-supported, nonprofit community cultural organization. It sponsors the Carriage Barn Arts Center in Waveny Park, home to art exhibitions and a variety of performances. The society offers art classes for adults and after-school classes for children. Another program is Creative Community Connections, which brings creativity, imagination, and problem-solving techniques through the arts to children in schools where the arts curriculum has been eliminated. Art exhibitions are held in the Betty Barker Gallery. Call 203-972-1895 or visit
