The Wall was built as a result of an arts-integrated residency at the Montpelier High School, in conjunction with the Community Engagement Lab. Together with teachers Katy Chabot (Biology) Sarah Squier (English) and Cathy Butterfield (History), students explored the concept of the wall in each of the core-curriculum subjects through the lens of the visual arts. This powerful and thought-provoking residency culminated in a walking installation, and later formed the stage-set for Dame Evelyn Glennie’s performance at the Barre Opera House, VT.
