NORWALK, Conn. -- The community is welcome to attend an opening celebration on Wednesday, April 6, for a new show at the Mayor's Gallery, titled "Community of Dreams: Recognizing Norwalk's Diversity."

Light refreshments will be served at the 6 p.m. reception, and Norwalk Mayor Harry Rilling will make remarks.

Rilling and over 70 members of the community have shared their dreams for Norwalk, for the mayor's community gallery. His dream for Norwalk is that "no child will go to bed hungry, so all of our children can succeed in getting good educations, because they're well prepared to focus on learning."

The mayor encourages everyone in Norwalk to take part in making this dream a reality.

Mayor's Gallery curator Melissa Slattery said, "I was honored to attend the West Rocks Middle School Martin Luther King Jr. Day Celebration on Jan. 18, when Mayor Rilling announced the Community of Dreams project. We have invited Norwalk elementary, middle and high school students to share their dreams for Norwalk, to create this new show in the Mayor's Gallery.

"Through writing and photography, their dreams and portraits offer visitors to Norwalk City Hall a wonderful picture of diversity in Norwalk today, and indicate that Norwalk's future will be enriched through our diversity of dreams."

The Community of Dreams project is also a public Facebook group -- and folks are encouraged to add their voices to the project. Participants can add their comments and selfies, to share their dreams for Norwalk.

The Mayor's Gallery is located on the second floor of Norwalk City Hall, 125 East Ave. For information about these events, contact Slattery at melissaslatteryct@gmail.com.
