What bridges will you build?

 

The Windsor Historical Society is proud to host the Windsor High School’s Pre-Advanced Placement Studio Art students’ exhibition Building Bridges. In October and November of 2011, the students toured Lon Pelton’s workshop and learned about his sources for inspiration and his creative process. They visited the Windsor Art Center and noted how Hartford-artist Jerry Barry uses scale and composition to draw viewers into his paintings. The students chatted with Len Hellerman about the importance of composition, as well as the business of being an artist. The group toured the Historic District and zoomed in on its diverse architectural details. The class also spent time sketching two juxtaposing bridges – the 1869 stone railroad bridge and the 1990 Palisado Avenue bridge – that cross the Farmington River and connect the Historic District to the rest of Windsor.  Drawing inspiration from architectural elements, the Farmington River bridges, and other artists, these high school juniors have crafted artworks that bridge the divide between historic and modern, established and contemporary, yesterday and today.
