Moccia Announces 'Consolidation of Norwalk' for Mayor's Gallery

The gallery will feature artwork from the consolidation of Norwalk's volunteer fire departments into a single unit.

 

Mayor Richard Moccia announced Tuesday evening the Mayor's Gallery of Norwalk at city hall will soon feature a "historical walk through time in the 'Consolidation of Norwalk 1913-2013.'"

The show will be unveiled on Friday, Feb. 15,and will feature "highlight images from important landmarks in the downtown area from a time when Norwalk was a city divided."

In a release announcing the event, some background was given on the inspiration for the display:

In 1913, voters in Norwalk voted to consolidate the cities of Norwalk and South Norwalk as well as the East Norwalk fire district. As part of the consolidation, the volunteer companies in the three departments were merged into one department.

The gallery promises to show "the evolution of a city over one hundred years."

The Norwalk Arts Commission sponsors the Mayor's Gallery of Norwalk, and the Cultural Arts Commission of Connecticut supports it in an effort exhibit art in public spaces and make art accessible to the public in a variety of venues, according to the release. Exhibition services are donated by Rockwell Art and Framing.
