The Ely Center of Contemporary Art is based in New Haven, CT. Our mission is to reaffirm the testamentary wishes of Grace T. Ely, who left the Elizabethan building in Trust as an art center for emerging practice in contemporary art. We strive for ECoCA to be a synergistic charge for the expression, engagement, and germination of culture makers and their audiences by fostering a vibrant, just, and healthy creative community for generations to come.
