The law firm of Brody Wilkinson PC is pleased to announce its support of “Our Nation’s Generations 2012” in partnership with the Fairfield Museum. Our Nation’s Generations, now in its fourth year, is an initiative designed to encourage students’ understanding of their family and community history. This year’s project paired students from The Unquowa School in Fairfield and New Beginnings Family Academy in Bridgeport in a collaborative learning exercise involving walking tours to explore Bridgeport’s architectural heritage and history as a once thriving cultural, industrial and maritime center. The students worked with local teaching artists, photographers, writers and historians to document their findings and ideas about the City’s future through photography and writing. Their works are now on exhibit at the Fairfield Museum through August 5, 2012.
“Bridgeport has played an important role in our firm’s history. We are delighted to celebrate the City’s past and help promote its future while, at the same time, fostering student education,” said Brody Wilkinson senior principal Thomas J. Walsh, Jr. who serves as vice president of the Museum’s Board of Directors and chair of its Finance Committee. A reception was held at the Museum last week to mark the exhibit’s opening. Several Brody Wilkinson attorneys attended the event.
