Four Sports

These paintings are on walls of a hallway leading out of the Norwalk City Hall atrium shown yesterday.

Three of these paintings were done in 1934.  The hockey painting is from 1938.

Artist George Avison was born in Norwalk in 1885. As an adult, he resided and raised a family and was a member of an artists colony in Norwalk.  His sons were models for the athletes in the series.

Norwalk players are in green, which is still the school teams' color today.

It was lily white back in the day wasn't it?

I like all of these paintings, Jack.

These four paintings might show the City Council debating an issue. They are fun paintings to see.
