Friday, April 5th, 5pm-7pm, The Providence Athenaeum presents the weekly SALON: “Curating the City: Temporary Installations, Permanent Impressions” series, part 2: “Parades and Papier-Mache,” with Union Studio Architecture & Community Design Partner Doug Kallfelz in conversation with Diana Johnson, independent art consultant and 195 Commission member, and Buff Chace, Managing General Partner of Cornish Associates, partner in the Greater Kennedy Plaza partnership.
Two areas of our city are currently the focus of planners and prognosticators. Both Kennedy Plaza and the Jewelry District seem full of promise, but are stuck in a holding pattern. While we wait for the longed-for influx of “cranes and cash,” is there a more temporary or seasonal approach to enriching these districts? Join Kallfelz, Johnson, and Chace for a discussion of what the near future might look like.
The Salon takes place at the Providence Athenaeum, 251 Benefit Street in Providence; entrance is at ground floor-level door at the corner of Benefit and College Streets. Free and open to the public. More at providenceathenaeum.org.
