Destination: Bridgeport

arts adventure destination: Bridgeport CT

I’m driving up to the Boston area to attend The Sandbox Summit, an annual conference that addresses the subject of “nurturing kids’ imagination in the digital age.” It’s a great opportunity to hear some speakers, attend some workshops, and network with other professionals in regards to my work at But it’s also a good opportunity to go on an arts adventure, and since the conference doesn’t start until Monday, I’m utilizing the full day Sunday to drive up and decide where I want to explore.

I didn’t really have much time to plan on a specific arts adventure, as I had just returned home late last night after a week on spring break with the family. So I just packed a new bag, loaded up the car, and hit the road. As I crossed the George Washington Bridge and was driving through Westchester, I thought about stopping in Bridgeport, Connecticut, as it would be about a third of the way to Boston, allowing me a break from driving. My thought was that Bridgeport’s industrial history, along with the fallout of closed factories decades ago, might provide some interesting finds in the way of street art and graffiti.
