The Norwalk Art Space was established to provide a venue for local artists to show their work and for local students to take free art classes.
The space will include a gallery, sculpture garden and studios for artists, as well as classrooms and workspaces for students. It will be open to the public free of charge.
Our Café will be a nice place to meet or hang, with artisan coffees, teas, and light fare.
In loving memory
Alexandra Davern Korry
The Norwalk Art Space was lovingly conceived and designed by Alexandra Davern Korry (1959-2020), a trailblazing lawyer, educator, civil rights advocate, and philanthropist. Alexandra wanted to create a space that would serve as a free hub for the arts, promoting local artists, enhancing educational opportunities for under-served students, and providing the public a welcoming space to enjoy art and music.
Sadly, Alexandra passed away before construction was completed. Our building, ADK House, is named in her honor.
Background on Alexandra and her civil rights work can be found here.
