Migrating Colors Artist Benefits
Chosen artists for Migrating Colors will benefit from having their art exhibited in a gallery that is located in a highly trafficked public space. The Maritime Garage is located in historic South Norwalk. The Garage has between 500 and 700 cars going in and out daily, with an average of three passengers. This brings an estimated 1,500 – 2,100 daily impressions to the space. In addition, there will be an opening reception that will be attended by artists, Parking Authority representatives, area politicians, notables, and the public. The Gallery promotes the opening reception and exhibit in all local media outlets.
About Maritime Garage Gallery
The Maritime Garage Gallery was founded by the Norwalk Parking Authority as part of its Art in Parking Places initiative. This effort to support art in public spaces, includes several permanent public art exhibits in the South Norwalk Railroad Station that highlight the city’s maritime tradition and other historical facts about town. These installations were made possible by a grant provided by the Federal transportation Enhancement Public Art Program. These initiatives are a collaboration of the Norwalk Parking Authority and the Norwalk Arts Commission. The Maritime Garage Gallery is free and open to the public Monday through Friday. The Norwalk Parking Authority oversees the management, operation, facilities, and maintenance of over 4,000 on and off-street parking spaces.
