Creating a photographic walking trail around Judkin’s Pond, where the Griffin Museum is located, the Fence is a public photo installation showcasing national, international and New England artists. This year we also bring sidewalk art to downtown Winchester, featuring contemporary New England based photographic artists and featured images from the Arthur Griffin archives.
The Griffin Museum is pleased to partner with Photoville and the Winchester Cultural District to bring the third annual Fence to Winchester, featuring 13 installations in photographic partnerships with the United Nations, Atlantic Magazine and Leica Camera USA, featuring the creativity and community of women and BIPOC artists alongside our local New England Photographic Community, highlighting the people and communities they inhabit.
Now in it’s 17th year, the students of Photosynthesis cover the walls of the Griffin Museum and Winchester High School. The students of Winchester and Burlington High Schools have worked to craft an introspective exhibition featured on banners outside the museum.
We are thrilled to have the creativity of the Winchester Community Music School curate music to enhance the visual experience. Each cube has a QR code that links to a specially composed soundtrack for the photographs.
Working as a visual and metaphorical bridge between the Skillings and Shore Roads, a new site specific installation on the Shore Road Bridge, creatively conceived by Mary McKenna with artwork by artist Stefanie Timmerman looks at the Aberjona Riverway, intersecting with our changing climate in an installation called Plastic Spring.
We want to thank our producing partners Photoville and the Arthur Griffin Foundation for bringing the Fence back to Winchester. We are grateful to our contributing partners, Mary McKenna & Associates Architects, the Town of Winchester, John and Mary Murphy Educational Foundation, Winchester Community Music School, Winchester High School, Burlington High School, The Jenks Center and the Winchester Cultural District. We couldn’t continue without our fiscal sponsors, EnKa Society, Winchester Savings Bank and the Winchester Cultural Council.
Thank you to our Winchester High School interns, McKenna McDaniels, Neave Bunting, Kelly McDowell and Duncan White.
