Washington resident Joseph A. Mustich was recently named an ambassador to the Northwest Connecticut Arts Council.

The mission of the Northwest Connecticut Arts Council is to promote the arts and cultural resources of Northwestern Connecticut as integral contributors to the quality of life in the region, to assist all artists and cultural organizations in their efforts to thrive, and to inform the general public about, and give access to the arts and culture in the region.

The council was established in 20013 as a result of a collaborative partnership between the Community Foundation of Northwest Connecticut and the Northwest Connecticut Chamber of Commerce.
