NORWALK, Conn.-- The Norwalk Public Library will unveil a very special painting at its main building on Friday, Sept. 20 at 5:30 p.m.
Frank Bruckmann, the artist behind "View of Norwalk Harbor from SoNo," will be on hand to speak about the painting, his art and his time in Norwalk.
The large oil painting (10 feet by 4 feet) is on long-term loan to the library from The Norwalk Museum. It was commissioned nearly 20 years ago as part of a public arts program, and it hung beneath the SoNo railroad trestle for nearly 2 years. It was salvaged by Ralph Bloom, then curator of The Norwalk Museum.
Bruckmann was educated at DuCret School of the Arts in New Jersey, The Art Students League in New York City and The Paris American Academy in France. He has also taught locally at The Bruce Museum in Greenwich, Silvermine Art School in New Canaan and Rowayton Arts Center in Darien.
