Map It Out -- Providence

  • Carriage House Gallery at the John Nicholas Brown Center for Public Humanities and Cultural Heritage 50 Williams Street Providence, RI, 02906 United States (map)

Map It Out – Providence (September 26 – November 14) is an exhibition of hand-drawn maps created by Providence and Rhode Island community members in collaboration with the Toronto-based artists Gwen MacGregor and Sandra Rechico. The maps reveal our community’s memories, and propose new ways of understanding the geography of our city and state.  Exhibition attendees are welcome to add their own maps to the exhibition.

Map It Out has previously been exhibited in Berlin and Long Island City. Maps from these two cities as well as those created in Cardiff, Wales will be exhibited along with the maps made in Rhode Island. This project is part of an ongoing collaborative art practice that uses creative processes to challenge mapping conventions.
