Brooklawn: A Walk in the Park – Opening Reception
August 22, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The Brooklawn neighborhood developed as an outgrowth of Bridgeport’s industrial revolution, providing a specially designed enclave for the booming city’s business leaders. Enjoy photographer Ari Burling’s luminous early morning photographs of the Brooklawn neighborhood and its unique landscape and architecture. Historical vignettes of the home’s original owners and their businesses will be featured alongside objects from the Museum’s collections. Burling will open the reception with remarks about his photographs, and Fairfield Museum’s Curator of Exhibitions Laurie Lamarre will speak on Brooklawn’s history.
