The Maritime Garage Gallery’s latest exhibit “Street Level” features works inspired by art in public places. The exhibit will run from October 25, 2018 through January 18, 2019. The Maritime Gallery is located in the Maritime Parking Garage exhibit space in Norwalk, CT.
“Street Level ”brings to life the notion that public art can transforms walls, buildings, and neighborhoods into outdoor galleries. Local artists exhibiting include Bobbie Bernstein of Westport, Tara Blackwell of Stamford, Sonia Bombart of Weston, Milan Chilla of Rowayton, David Kaplan of Greenwich, Al Coyote Weiner of Fairfield, and Gregory Ziebell of Norwalk.
“Hidden messages, bold colors, lines and imagery, powerful statements are some of the characteristics of the artworks selected for our latest exhibition,” says the Gallery’s curator Nadia Martinez. “These pieces have been inspired by the street's language as street art, guerrilla art, graffiti, tagging, stencil graffiti, poster art, and urban intervention and movements.”
The Maritime Garage Gallery is part of the Parking Authority’s “Art in Parking Places” placemaking initiative, an effort to support art in public spaces, helping to make Norwalk a more vibrant destination. The gallery is free and open to the public from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. For more information, call 203- 831-9063, or visit www.norwalkpark.org/public-art
