Sites and Stories Explored: She Died for Our Convenience

May is Preservation Month! Come celebrate with PPS as we host events across Providence that highlight our city’s unique architectural heritage.

The Providence Preservation Society has engaged five artists / artist teams to create new works related to four of our 2018 Most Endangered Properties. In 2019, PPS will unveil these five original artistic works that explore hidden and layered narratives of several endangered historic sites in Providence. More information on this project can be found here.

Artists Rebecca Noon and Jed Hancock-Brainerd present She Died for Our Convenience, a one-night-only choral haunting of song and performance. The work is based on and dedicated to “unsung” female mill workers, who worked from 1898-1960 in the textile mill at the Earnscliffe Woolen Mill/Paragon Worsted Co. on Manton Ave in the Olneyville neighborhood in Providence. This event is free and open to the public, with advance registration required.

Date: Saturday, May 4

Time: Begins at 7 pm

Location: 25 & 39 Manton Avenue
