Chabot Fine Art Gallery is pleased to present “The Ten Most Endangered Properties Photography Exhibit”. The Ten Most Endangered Properties List helps to call attention to significant historic and architectural resources citywide that are endangered by threats including deterioration, insufficient funds, insensitive public policy and inappropriate development–problems that jeopardize many properties throughout Providence.
The List, which this year includes nineteenth-century commercial buildings, neighborhood landmarks, reminders of Providence’s industrial heritage, and properties owned by private institutions and citizens, is meant to generate interest in and support for the preservation of these significant resources; to educate the public about the benefits of historic preservation and the extraordinary stock of historic properties in our city; and to spur property owners, developers, and other interested parties to bring about positive changes in the properties.
This photography exhibit features striking photography by some of the most talented professional photographers in Rhode Island: Jan Armor, Michael Cevoli, Ryan Conaty Andrew Dernavich, Stephanie Ewens, Adam Hall, Deborah Hickey, Brian McDonald, Frank Mullin, and Traer Scott. Using both black and white and color prints, and a variety of photographic formats, the photographers reveal unique details of the buildings and illustrate the story of their endangerment.
The Exhibit will be on display from September 9th until October 16th.
