A Day In Winsted and Winchester

Melissa Post & Tom Porter select some must-see spots in the Winsted / Winchester area.

The American Mural Project
The American Mural Project is a 501(c)(3) organization with an unusual approach to arts education. It is involved in the creation of the largest indoor collaborative artwork in the world – a mural 120 feet long, five stories high, and up to ten feet deep. A tribute to working Americans, this mural is the center of the organization’s educational program.

Post Porter Photoworks is a joint collaboration between husband and wife team Melissa Post and Tom Porter. The two met while working in a commercial photo lab, where their mutual passion for photography brought them together. They soon settled in the northwest corner of CT where the garden of their funky old home is a major source of inspiration. When not out puttering in the garden they can also be found paddling on their local ponds looking for photos of lily pads and snapping turtles!Website | Twitter | Facebook | melandtom@charter.net
