Sutton, Border Town

A border shapes the personality of the communities that straddle it. This is the case with Sutton Township. For two centuries its many communities have shared a common border with Vermont — a border that is often invisible save for the occasional, small, border markers set amidst magnificent landscapes.

The exhibition illustrates the multiple aspects of this “border impact”. Using archival video and text documents, as well as audio and video testimonies, it showcases the particularities of border communities; the social, economic and cultural impacts that resulted over the years because of proximity to the border; and the relationships to the border shared by residents on both sides of the international boundary.
