The Rowayton Arts Center, which has been the only center for the arts in Norwalk for more than 50 years, will "pop up" on Wall Street in Norwalk with a show of diverse artworks by 24 award-winning artists from throughout the region. "RAC on Wall Street" is among a variety of arts activities being presented this summer at POP CITY Gallery, 68 Wall St., in association with Norwalk 2.0.
There will be a free opening reception from 6 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 15. A Drumming Circle with Kojo Bey, sponsored by the Obey Foundation, will be a highlight of the closing reception on Sunday, Aug. 25. Show hours are 6 to 9 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and from 3 to 6 p.m. on Sundays. Admission is free.
Hu Lindsay, the curator for "RAC on Wall Street," said, "We're pleased to have this opportunity for RAC exhibiting artists to display works that are too large to enter in our monthly Arts Center exhibitions.
The show features wall art (drawing, kenetic sculpture, mixed media, painting, photography, woodcuts) more than 40 inches in width or height.
"I wanted this exhibit to showcase the diversity of high-quality art created by RAC members. I think we have succeeded with wonderful works in a wide variety of styles and also with a wide range of subject matter. I couldn't be more gratified by the response from membership and know this show will be a success."
