FenceART is a public art project dedicated to bringing vibrant, engaging art to neighborhoods throughout Newton. A jury-chosen group of 20 works by Newton artists, embracing a broad range of styles and media (within the boundaries of propriety for public outdoor art), are printed on high-quality vinyl banners. The banners rotate to 5 Newton public fence locations for approximately 10 weeks at a time, in groups of 3 to 5 works. Over the course of a year, all 20 works will be shown at each location. This is a joint project of Newton Open Studios (NOS) and Newton Community Pride.
This program is supported in part by a grant from the Newton Cultural Council,
a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
The 2019/20 banners are on public display from
October 2019 through mid-September 2020.
The 5 locations:
Newton Free Library (parking lot entrance)
Newton Senoir Center, Walnut St at Walnut Place.
Watertown St at Bridge St (next to Colletti-Magni Park)
