Greenwich art teacher turns abandoned mail truck into art.


WILTON — Three years ago, Ben Quesnel’s friend found two abandoned mail trucks in the back of his woods in South Windsor. Inside one of the mail trucks, they discovered a box of magazines, advertisements and other mail dating back to 1982 that never made it to their final destination.

Now, Quesnel is turning the abandoned mail truck into an interdisciplinary art installation at his studio at 5 River Road in the Wilton River Park Shopping Center. Inside the installation, visitors will hear different sounds, view video works and read written letters by local authors, poets and other creatives from Connecticut mixed with some of the abandoned mail he found.

Anyone, including visitors, can also submit a letter or piece of artwork to the installation — as long as it goes along with the theme of “Undelivered.”
