The Providence Preservation Society invites artists to propose new works related to PPS’s Most Endangered Properties of 2018. The Most Endangered Properties program engages the public in thinking about the future of significant historic buildings, landscapes, structures, and neighborhoods. With “Sites and Stories,” we aim to expand this engagement through the work of committed Rhode Island-based artists, involving the community in the re-building of narratives around the human beings who inhabited these important properties. Artists and artist teams will have the opportunity to engage with scholars, historic preservationists and communities, interpreting endangered sites, drawing out hidden histories, and provoking essential public conversations.
To read the full Call to Artists and Summary Narratives of selected Most Endangered Properties, please click here to access the Dropbox. The Call to Artists is also attached to this email.
Proposals are due by 11:59 PM on Friday, June 15, 2018. Open to Rhode Island artists only.
