Nearly one hundred gathered at the Windsor Historical Society Jan. 9 in celebration of Building Bridges, the Society's three-year collaborative exhibition of historically-inspired artwork produced by Windsor High students.

According to the Society, 13 students contributed pieces of art that traversed the art media spectrum — artwork inspired by architectural elements found in Windsor's Historic District, Palisado Cemetery and Broad Street Green.

The Jan. 9 ceremony saw each student present statements accompanying their works, followed by a conversation"about the role of art and architecture, the importance of art education and historic preservation, and how a community can contribute to a sense of place that permeates through all aspects of a community," the Society said in a statement.

The students' work will be on display through March 1.

The Windsor Historical Society is open from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m., Wednesday - Saturday. General admission is $8 for adults, $6 for seniors and students, and free for children under the age of 12 and Society members.
