The City of Norwalk Parking Authority’s Maritime Garage Gallery presents “Boom,” a new exhibit at the Maritime Gallery, through July 31, 2015.
“Boom” will showcase art that looks at prosperity and the overindulgences that have become the norm in a group show of artists that includes Ben Quesnel from Stamford, Ruth Kalla Ungerer from Westport and Sue Benton from Stratford, Sue Benton from Stratford, as well as Charmaine Rawsthorne and Michael Thron, of Norwalk, among others.
Maritime Garage Gallery Curator Sooo-z Mastropieto describes the concepts that fuel the art in the exhibit. “Eat. Sleep. Work. Spend. BOOM explores lofty aspirations and striving for goals, while making our mark in the world. It questions, how much is enough and are we ever happy once those endeavors are met?”
The Maritime Garage Gallery is part of the Parking Authority’s “Art in Parking Places” initiative, an effort to support art in public spaces making Norwalk a more vibrant destination. The gallery is located at 11 North Water Street in South Norwalk in the Maritime Garage. It is free and open to the public from 9:00am -5:00pm Monday through Friday.
