Arts Hall of Fame Induction

Description: The Manchester Arts Commission has announced the names of those who will be inducted into their Arts Hall of Fame on Thursday, June 13th at a celebration to be held at the Manchester Country Club and combined with their State of the Arts event.

Artist Rebecca Maloney, the Manchester Pipe Band, and Manchester High School students Dmitriy Cestaro and Hailey Ngo will be inducted by the Commission and presented with gifts created by local glass artist Robin Simpson. Their names will be inscribed into plaques, which can be found at Town Hall, containing the names of dozens of Manchester honorees.

Maloney has been painting for over 20 years and creates beautiful artwork using collage and mixed media. She leads workshops, arts events and takes on commissioned work. Raised in Manchester, she currently lives elsewhere in Connecticut, and will be present and honored by artist Prathima Bhargav.

The Manchester Pipe Band is a competition and performance bagpipe band, founded in 1914 and is one of the oldest pipe bands in the United States. Beyond performance at many special occasions and parades, they teach bagpipe to a new generation and maintain a high standard of musicianship. Nominated by Margaret Lynch, members of the Pipe Band will also perform at the ceremony.
