First Baptist Church Shutter Project
Last summer, the First Baptist Church of Westwood replaced the aging wooden shutters on its historic meetinghouse. Rather than throwing away the shutters that were still intact, the church invited artists to take a shutter and decorate it in any manner they chose.
These decorated shutters, pictured below, will be auctioned off in a silent auction between September 30 and November 1. People can submit their bid(s) through the bid sheet to the right. Bids will be updated no less than once a day.
After the bidding closes on November 1, the shutters will be awarded to the highest bidders. The proceeds for each shutter will be distributed with half of the highest bid going to the charity chosen by the artist and half going to the charity selected by First Baptist, The Greater Boston Food Bank. In early November, once payment has been received from the winning bidders, the church will arrange for them to pick up their shutters and will publicize the outcome of this event.
