“The mARTket” info

Thanks to the donation of an empty storefront at 136 Washington St. by TR SoNo Partners, Norwalk 2.0 created a pop-up environment where exhibits, performers and events can take place throughout the summer. In June the City of Norwalk Arts Commission hosted a live model draw-a-thon to kick off the summer. In late June, mARTket opened its doors to a two week “Fresh Produce” exhibit. On July 19th, A Taste of India, an Indian culinary cultural experience will be held. On July 21st, the “Eye Candy” exhibit will open, followed by another mARTket exhibit opening on the 28th of July.
