Alexandra Davern

Korry

The Norwalk Art Space was lovingly conceived and designed by Alexandra Davern Korry (1959-2020), a trailblazing M&A lawyer, educator, civil rights advocate, and philanthropist. Alexandra wanted to create a space that would serve as a free hub for the arts, promoting under-represented 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.
