Description

Sites and Stories Explored Through Community Engaged Art and Scholarship

The Providence Preservation Society has engaged five artists / artist teams to create new works related to four of our 2018 Most Endangered Properties.

Artist presentations and performances will take place in April and May. Please join PPS for these exciting events, featuring artwork that provokes important conversations about the meaning of place, what happens when a site tells more than one story, and what kind of reparative work can ensue when a site erases some of its narratives in favor of others.

David Wells and Walker Mettling present their interpretive projects on the Broad Street Synagogue and Knight Memorial Library, respectively.
