Westport has a vibrant artistic history and this summer marks the 110th anniversary of the first art exhibition held in Westport. Organized by the first generation of resident artists, it took place at Westport’s First Library in 1911.
In 1964, art educator Burt Chernow started the Westport Schools Collection, believing in the visual education of our students by presenting them with original examples of work by well-known artists in each school. This continues to be the mission and vision of Westport’s Public Art Collections (WestPAC, for short.)
