Printed Vinyl Banners
A teaching-arts collaborative with students at Dr. Jorge Alvarez High School in Providence, RI. Alvarez students researched the South Side and selected six subjects that best represented their neighborhood. Students composed text and created artwork to represent each subject. Banners were installed at six locations throughout the community.
Six subjects were chosen to represent the South Side:
Doña Fefa, Sissieretta Jones, Betsey Williams, J.N. Arnold, Mashapaug Pond, and the role that transportation played in creating the South Side. The fact that half of these subjects were women is a source of neighborhood pride.
