FenceART is a year-round public art project directed by Ellen Fisher.  It is dedicated to bringing vibrant, varied, and engaging art to neighborhoods throughout Newton.  Each year 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 in small groups to 5 viewable fence locations in Newton for approximately 10 weeks at a time.  Over the course of a year, all 20 works are shown at all 5 locations.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Newton Cultural Council, a local agency that is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency. Additional support is provided by: Newton Community Pride and Newton Open Studios.
