WHS Student Art Opening
Join us at Windsor Historical Society on Thursday, January 25, 2018 from 5:30-7 p.m. for a FREE public opening featuring artwork created by Windsor High School’s Pre-AP Art students who have been inspired by the historic architecture of Windsor’s Broad Street and Palisado Greens, Palisado Cemetery, and Farmington River Railroad Bridge. On view will be student collages incorporating layers of historic imagery and representing their feelings about their hometown. At 6 p.m. a video will be shown where students talk about what inspired them on their tours, and what they learned about their town and about themselves as a result of this class. Enjoy delicious light refreshments sponsored by Rabbett Insurance Agency, and celebrate connections these talented young people have made between Windsor’s past, present, and future through their art.

WHS Education and Outreach Manager John Mooney and Windsor High School art teacher Marjorie Renno guided the 11th-grade students as they toured their town this past fall, took digital images, and worked in the studio to craft their works of art. Each work will include representations of architectural elements discovered on their walk through town as well as maps, sketches, and photographs. Each is accompanied by an artist’s statement outlining how Windsor’s landscape and architectural features contribute to their personal sense of home. The artworks will be exhibited in the Society’s meeting room from January 25th through March 1st.
