"Championing artists at every stage of their careers..."


“Creativity is the lifeblood of an exciting, healthy and rich community, particularly when it includes young and old, and all spectrums of the population. Volunteering for Five Points has made me feel a part of enriching our community and has introduced me to people in the arts who are interesting, positive, community minded and fun.” – W.H.

Volunteer opportunities are available at the Gallery and the Art Center and include (but are not limited to) gallery sitting, hospitality, events, gardening, facility improvements, and program assistance.

Incorporated in 2012, Five Points Center for the Visual Arts is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit cultural organization.  Five Points’ commitment to excellence and innovative curatorial stance has played a pivotal role in the rebirth of downtown Torrington as an art destination.   The transformation of the former UCONN campus to a world-class Art Center will only further the positive impact of the arts in this region and the state.
