Little/Big Providence

  • John Nicholas Brown Center for the Public Humanities 365 Benefit Street Providence, RI, 02903 United States (map)

Inspired by the Tiny Exhibit display case at the John Nicholas Brown Center for Public Humanities, curators asked themselves–does tiny have to mean less? A crack in the bricks, the curve of decorative wrought iron, peeling gold lettering–these are the parts of Providence we overlook every day. For many Providence is home, even if it’s just temporary. Little/Big Providence is an exploration of the tiny details on big buildings here in Providence. It’s an exploration of the parts, big and small, that help make up home.
