Little/Big Providence

Inspired by the Tiny Exhibit display case, we asked ourselves–does tiny have to mean less? A crack in the bricks, the curve of decorative wrought iron, peeling gold lettering–these are the parts of Providence we overlook every day. For many of us, Providence is home, even if it’s just temporary. Little/Big Providence is an exploration of the tiny details on big buildings here in Providence. It’s an exploration of the parts, big and small, that help make up home.
