The exhibit, entitled “ReVisit Bridgeport: Photographs by Ed Brinsko,” features some of his best photos at McLevy Hall, 202 State St., Bridgeport.

An opening reception will take place Saturday, Jan. 10 from 1-4 p.m. at McLevy Hall, third floor. Michael Daly, Connecticut Post editorial page editor, will lead a discussion on Brinsko’s work during the reception. The event is open to the public.

The exhibit will remain open through Jan. 31 by appointment only; those interested can contact Jay or Geralene at or 203-268-8306.
