The 2024 RCA Summer Music Festival continues on Sunday, July 14 at 5:30 p.m. with Neighbor and Residual Groove at Bayley Beach. With a diverse catalog of hundreds of songs, Neighbor has become one of the most exciting and unpredictable live bands on the music scene today. Grown in large part by the passion and devotion of the fans called Neighbors, their symbiotic relationship inspires and touches every performance. The creation of childhood neighbors Richard James (vocals, keys) and Lyle Brewer (guitar), Neighbor combines ambitious composition, soulful balladry, and a fearless approach to their lengthy improvisations. The quartet is rounded out by Dan Kelly (bass) and Dean Johnston (drums) who fuel the groove and lay a solid foundation for Neighbor’s “down home” sound. Bayley Beach is located at 11 Pine Point Rd.

🖌️🎨Norwalk residents, we need your input! Please fill out our survey by Friday, July 26th! Choose the colors, animals/fish, and words you want to see featured on the City's new exciting West Avenue wall mural, which will be situated between our two urban core areas, South Norwalk and Wall Street.

Take the survey here:
https://bit.ly/4fcyAlx 

🖌️🎨Why do we need your input? The Norwalk Arts and Cultural Commission carefully reviewed hundreds of proposals submitted through a public call for artists for the West Avenue Wall project. From these submissions, five outstanding proposals were presented at the Commission meeting, where the final selection was made. We are proud to announce that world-renowned artists Sonny Behan and Ernesto Maranje were chosen for these remarkable pieces.

The three survey questions include selecting the:

1.) Color! Vote on color options: Option A is brighter and Option B is darker.

2.) Types of animals/fish! Rank the animals/fish listed or add your own idea through the "other options" selection. The large scale of the mural allows for the inclusion of many popular selections.

3.) Words! We are seeking your guidance on exactly what the mural should say or if it should say nothing at all. We provide several options but also welcome "other options" so you can share
your creativity and ideas!

🖌️🎨What are the next steps once the survey is closed on July 26th? Once we gather the community's input, the artists will adjust the mockup, and the contract will be submitted to the Common Council for approval. This project is funded by the Arts and Cultural Commission in partnership with the Norwalk Redevelopment Agency. If approved, the artists plan to begin the mural work in September. The installation will take about a month and include wall preparation, priming, and painting.

🖌️🎨After that, we will need the community's help once again! The Business Development and Tourism Department, in collaboration with the Arts and Cultural Commission, plans to host an event where the public can participate in the installation and meet the artists.

Norwalk on the Connecticut Oyster Trail Map. The Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development is promoting The Connecticut Oyster Trail, which includes a map that charts more than 12 oyster farms and 20 restaurants and seafood markets. Calling the Nutmeg State “the Napa Valley of oysters,” Governor Ned Lamont said the initiative honors aquaculture farmers who have inspired a new generation of chefs to “think about this fruit of the sea as king of the kitchen.” On the map, you can discover some of the best Norwalk has to offer, ranging from farm-fresh to farm-to-table, at oyster farms Copps Island and White Rock Oysters (7 Edgewater Place), Paganos Seafood market (142 Water St.), and Ripka's Beach Café restaurant (99 Calf Pasture Beach Rd.).
