Photographers and cultural historians Jay Misencik and Geralene Valentine are participating in the 8th Annual Bridgeport Art Trail at the newly renovated Harral Building, 1103 Main St., Bridgeport from November 11-13, 2016. They will have a pop-up gallery for a three-day run including two of their bodies of work.

From their press email: "Poli’s Palace & Majestic Theatres Memories Project brings to life the two magnificent dormant theatres on Main Street in Bridgeport, CT. Complementing architectural photos of the theatre interiors, people share memories of their time spent at the two theatres. The theatres, built by Sylvester Z. Poli, opened in 1922. They closed in the 1970s.

The Bridgeport Portrait Project is a photo/audio/video documentary style project that introduces you to the people who are Bridgeport. The project participants share their stories of values and beliefs . . . culture and heritage. They define Bridgeport, and tell why the City is so much more than just a PLACE."

Hours are Friday noon - 10 pm, Saturday and Sunday noon - 5 pm.
