10 Most Endangered Properties Traveling Exhibit

Thursday, 11/15/2007

PPS was proud to open one of the first-ever Most Endangered Properties Traveling Exhibit. This scaled-down version of the Most Endangered Properties Gallery Exhibit featured photographs of all eleven properties on the 2007 Most Endangered List. The goal of the Traveling Exhibit is to eventually reach all twenty-five Providence neighborhoods. The show was on display in public spaces such as libraries, cafes, galleries, and renovated mill buildings.

The Traveling Exhibit kicked off in the exhibit space at the John Nicholas Brown Center (JNBC) for the Study of American Civilization, Brown University's center for the public humanities. The JNBC is located in the Nightingale-Brown House at 357 Benefit Street on College Hill.

The exhibit featured the first-ever Most Endangered Properties List Oral History Project. You could hear the voices and memories of people associated with the historic buildings on this year’s list.

The exhibit was open Friday, December 7 1:00 - 4:00 p.m. and during the PPS Holiday Festival House Tour on Saturday, December 8 from 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
