MAIN GALLERY:


SeenUnseen: Providence

Photographer Meehan spent a year travelling throughout Providence making portraits of its residents. The result is a collection of photographs that capture the diverse citizens of Providence, explore what community means, and how we "see" one another. The exhibition complements an installation of 8 large-scale prints on downtown buildings for the Providence International Arts Festival. For a map of the outdoor installation please click here.
