Public Art Commission: Spring 2024

In conjunction with the 50th anniversary of Abbot Academy and Phillips Academy becoming a single institution, Jennifer Cecere will create two site-specific installations. Referencing and recontextualizing the humble lace ornament, an oversized and reflective doily will adorn the Addison’s façade, while one of the artist’s signature doily benches will enliven the Abbot Circle. Dynamically linking both campuses, Cecere’s bold and outsized designs will encourage reconsideration of the habitually overlooked contributions of women artists and, by extension, the often underappreciated yet lasting impact of Abbot Academy on the culture and traditions of Phillips Academy.
