The Norwalk, Conn., office of accounting firm Citrin Cooperman recently donated 20 pieces of art to local Seabury Academy of the Music and the Arts.

“We can’t thank Citrin Cooperman enough for this incredibly generous gift,” said Lynden Magnoli, vice president of the academy, in a statement. “This one-of-a-kind gesture will help to enrich the lives of all of those who participate in the programs of the academy,”

Citrin Cooperman partner Gil Watkins’ ties to the academy, dating back to his role as its founding treasurer, made him an instrumental part of the donation.

“There could be no better home for our collection than Seabury, which has community-oriented programs for children and adults in the areas of music education and performance, as well as in the visual arts,” Watkins stated.   

The gifted artwork commemorates important musical and art exhibitions around the globe, where it was collected by the firm over the last 30 years.

“This donation is part of Citrin Cooperman’s ongoing policy of giving back to the community,” said Mark L. Fagan, managing partner of the firm’s Norwalk office.  “At Citrin Cooperman we take great pride in working with charitable groups such as the Seabury Academy. The firm is very pleased to have this opportunity to support this commendable organization.”
