A four-piece exhibit of wooden fence flags adorn the 9/11 commemorative grounds. Handcrafted by Fairfield artist Matthew Hallock, the flags are made from old fence panels and painted in red, white and blue paint. One notable flag called Twin Towers is 8 feet tall.
The flags are for sale, with a portion of the proceeds going to the 9/11 fund. Those who wish to donate to help preserve the 911 Memorial can make checks payable to the Town of Easton; in the memo line write Memorial Garden. Send to Easton Town hall: 225 Center Rd, Easton, CT 06612.
Hallock’s fence flags are displayed throughout the area, including for many years at the Tunxis Hill outdoor art gallery and annually at the Pequot Library art show. His flags range from the size of small refrigerator magnets to large flags that cover the entire side of a barn. To learn more visit www.fenceflags.us or contact Hallock directly at (203) 292-0299.
