Our annual Ten Most Endangered Properties Photography Exhibit offers new perspectives on irreplaceable Providence structures threatened by vandalism, arson, owner neglect, deferred maintenance, and insensitive development. Taken by some of the region’s premiere photographers, these images help us see our city’s threatened buildings anew, some by cataloging fascinating details, others by showing us scope and context. A remarkable collaboration of artistry and advocacy, the exhibit both documents our city’s unrivaled historic architecture and reminds all of us who care about this place that its protection demands our action.
The exhibit features photographs of the now-demolished Outlet Garage (1963) and the imperiled Grove Street School (1901) among other significant buildings. With photographers Kate Salvi, Stephanie Ewens, Deborah Hickey, Warren Jagger, Heidi Gumula, Frank Mullin, Michael Cevoli, Tim Hiebert, Jesse Burke, Traer Scott, Adam Hall, Jan Armor, and John Caserta.
