Wenham's 375th Anniversary Committee participated in this year's Art Grows Here - a 10 day outdoor tour of art throughout Hamilton and Wenham - July 13-22, 2018. Our "Happy Birthday Wenham" display was located on the lawn of Wenham Town Hall. The exhibit included all entries from the "Happy Birthday Wenham" art contest, featuring the winning entry by Sylvia Coleman. The "375th" numbers defining the exhibit was painted by the historic Essex Green, and was made by resident Paul Mendonca.
