His work is in public collections at the Met, the Guggenheim, the Whitney, MoMA, the Wadsworth Atheneum, and the British Museum in the London. He is the former dean of Hartford Art School and helped create a studio facility for teaching art and technology. 

Barry Blitt
He has illustrated over 70 New Yorker covers—the one of Michelle and Barack Obama is now legendary—with a flair that is sometimes irreverent but always ingenious. 

Daniel Day-Lewis & Rebecca Miller 
He made Oscar history by being the first actor to win three Academy Awards, most recently for Lincoln. She has written two novels, a book of short stories, and four film scripts. Although they spend part of their time in Ireland, they maintain her late parents’ home in Roxbury and are supporters of their local land trust.

They have made the Northville Market a must-stop for both full-time residents and weekenders. Now they have transformed the Bantam Market into another mecca for food lovers. The couple pays attention to what people want and need—and deliver it.

Curtis Hanson
One of the foremost landscape painters in the region, he has been portraying the iconic imagery of Northwest Connecticut since 1979. Whether he is painting in his studio in Cornwall Hollow or in Asia, where he spends a good deal of time, he captures the essence of each place.                                       

Rinker Buck
He is the author of three books and a regular contributor to the Hartford Courant. His in-depth stories have covered everything from pharmaceutical companies, and the need to monitor what they do, to the effects of war on veterans of Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Iraq. 

Michael DiLullo
The Venetian has been a mainstay of Torrington for over 40 years, thanks to the efforts and talents of DiLullo and his family. To enter the restaurant is to be transported to an Italian trattoria. 

Lane Smith & Mollie Leach
He is an award-winning, children’s-book author and illustrator. She is a renowned book designer. In addition to creating his own books, he has done illustrations for many famous writers, including Roald Dahl and Dr. Seuss.

Peter Dalton-Morris
Following in the footsteps of Marcel Breuer, who brought the modernist movement to Litchfield, Dalton-Morris has designed several modern houses.

His French upbringing instilled in him a sense of style, grace, and a discerning eye. He is included in Architectural Digest’s prestigious annual list of the best decorators and architects. His house in Kent, with its spectacular gardens, is a testament to his talent and observation.

Stephen Sondheim
It would be impossible to list all the contributions to Broadway, musical theater, film, and TV of this gifted composer and lyricist. From West Side Story to Sweeney Todd to Passion to Company, he has touched the hearts of theatergoers. 

Jeff Greenwood

Patti Lupone
We have loved her as Mama Rose, Eva Peron, Norma Desmond, and in other Broadway roles. We love that she makes her home in Northwest Connecticut and that she is eager to support local charities.

Peter T. Rich
Daytime TV would not be the same without this man. The Emmy–winning writer has penned some of soap opera’s most memorable lines.

James B. Rokos
For 45 years, he has been director of health at the Torrington Area Health District. TAHD was the second health district formed in Connecticut. The agency deals with a wide range of traditional public-health responsibilities, including septic systems, wells, food inspections, and other environmental health concerns. 

Darin Ronning & Travis Messinger
A visit to the Metropolitan Museum inspired the concept for Bantam Tileworks. Working out of their newly renovated space, the duo create handcrafted, specially colored tiles, glazed with a finish that is unique to their work. In addition, they are staunch supporters of local artisans.

The organization’s programs identify opportunities for job development, educate the public about affordable housing, and increase tourism.

Philip Gorrivan 
As an interior designer, he gives new meaning to the word classic. With just a single paint color or one perfectly placed object, he can create a room that truly suits the owner. He and his family make their home in Litchfield County, where he contributes to many events and writes about design.

Charles Van Doren
He is the author of some 25 books and an adjunct professor of English at UConn, Torrington. As the son of Pulitzer Prize–winning poet Mark Van Doren and writer Dorothy Van Doren, he has devoted his life to his love of literature and writing. For many years, he and wife Gerry have made Cornwall their home. 

Averil Smith
In addition to her involvement in organizing Tea for 200, she and her therapy dog visited oncology patients at New Milford Hospital.
