The talk is being held in concert with the exhibit “From Main Street to Madison Avenue,” featuring previously unseen works by Westport artists “illustrating their important role in advertising,” said Leslie Lasala, WAC spokeswoman.

The talk will be moderated by Kerston Mitton-Rivas, president of Source CXM. Participants include Michael Brennecke, former creative director at Young & Rubicam, Joe Schachter, former vice president at J. Walter Thompson, and Norm Siegel, past creative director at Ogilvy and Mather; DMB&B.

“Also at the roundtable event, the winner of the student high school exhibition’s ‘Best of Show’ award will be announced,” Lasala said. The $500 award is sponsored by Sontag Advisory.

The talk is free for WAC members and $15 for nonmembers in advance. Tickets at door are $20 each for members and nonmembers.
