On the calendar: Victor Civkin – Westport Modernist

With a backdrop of the photo exhibition of modern architecture in Westport and Weston, "When Cool Was Hot", a small-town sort of gathering will take place on Sunday, March 21 at 2pm in the Westport Historical Society Gallery. The panel discussion, Victor Civkin: Rediscovered will feature Rena and Carla Schine, Mr. Civkin’s daughter and granddaughter, and Civkin expert Mark R. Halstead AIA.  Civkin, a Russian immigrant, was largely an unrecognized multi-talented artist and modernist architect living and working in Westport. There will be refreshments and owners of Civkin houses are encouraged to bring photos and share stories. – GF
