About the Exhibition: Minnie Griswold died in 1952, at which time her sons locked up their mother’s house in Pawlet, Vermont and left all her belongings in place, untouched, unaltered. Thirty years later, Pawlet documentarians Susanne and Neil Rappaport were invited by Charlie, one of Minnie’s sons, now 85 years old, into the home, and went on to produce a collection of hand-colored photographs of Minnie’s home. This exhibition brings together the best in documentary work and artistic expression.
