Bushnell Center for Performing Arts

Hotels near Bushnell Center for Performing Arts, Hartford, United States .

One of Hartford's most prominent cultural attractions is The Bushnell Center for Performing Arts. Often the site of performances by The Hartford Symphony Orchestra, The Bushnell Center for Performing Arts was built in 1930 as a living memorial to the Reverend Horace Bushnell by his daughter, Dotha. In addition to being an important theologian, Reverand Bushnell was also one of the city's foremost civil rights leaders.

The architectural firm that designed The Bushnell Center for Performing Arts were the same people behind the design for Radio City Music Hall in New York City. With an Art Deco interior, complete with the largest hand-painted ceiling mural in the entire country, the building itself is worth visiting just to enjoy the architectural details.

The Bushnell Center for Performing Arts seats around 2,800 guests and is still used today for performances, including plays, comedy, and talks. Recent performers include Joan Rivers and a theatrical performance of Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein. Hours vary according to the schedule of what's on, so it is best to call ahead before planning a visit that involves touring the interior.

A number of downtown hotels are just a short distance from The Bushnell Center for Performing Arts, including The Homewood Suites by Hilton, The Holiday Inn Express Hartford Downtown, and The Parkside Hotel.
