An exhibit at the City Hall Gallery, 2nd Floor City Hall,
25 Dorrance Street, Providence
May 4th-June 22nd
Opening Reception and program, May 4, 5:00-7:00 pm
Can you imagine zipping around downtown on a monorail train? Rowing a boat in front of the State House? Driving on a freeway soaring above the canal? At one time, these incredible ideas were proposed for our city.
Capital Ideas: Planning Providence commemorates the history of Providence by presenting design plans drawn from the City Archives. View proposals for never-built projects and imagine the places in Providence that might have been.
What kind of Providence would you design?
Exhibition Opening Event Details:
The opening event in City Hall is an all-ages exhibition opening with programming that includes a talk from the City Hall archivist, Paul Campbell, as well as poster-making; visitors will create the imaginary Providence that they would like to see realized. These posters will be laminated and displayed at the Roger Williams National Memorial to serve as a monument to the 375th.
