Anne Cubberly loves to dream up new ways to engage people’s minds and spark their imaginations. She believes that all people are innately creative and have a unique perspective to offer. Anne is dedicated to building community through creative expression in Hartford, Connecticut and beyond.
Her work with communities includes 12 years and counting as a guest artist at the Cleveland Museum of Art’s Parade the Circle. At “Parade,” Anne works alongside local and international artists, exchanging ideas and culture under a tent.
In 2007, Anne and Steve Mitchell began the Parade Project at Asylum Hill Congregational Church in Hartford, Connecticut. This free 5 day event invites Asylum Hill neighborhood families to create costumes, props, giant puppets and to learn stilt walking. The experience culminates in an explosion of color, music and celebration as they parade through the neighborhood to the Sigourney Park Festival.
Night Fall was born in 2011, after years of dreaming about a performance that would celebrate the riches of Hartford’s landscape, artists, community and giant puppets. Cubberly, LB Muñoz, and Steve Mitchell have dedicated themselves to creating this free yearly event which supports and connects local artists and neighbors in a spectacle of giant puppets, stilters, dancers, singers, and community.
Anne’s work as a professional artist for over 25 years has included hundreds of workshops with people of all ages and abilities. She takes great joy in supporting the creativity of others and is always asking the question, “how can we make this experience is much fun as possible for all?”
