Now in its 6th year, FenceART  is a City of Newton, annually juried, Rotating Public Art Project.  It is a project of Newton Community Pride 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, 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 are shown at each location.

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. Additional support provided by: Newton Community Pride and Newton Open Studios.
