Mary Beth Meehan in partnership with the City of Providence and RISD to display banners

Description

Mary Beth Meehan's installation of banner-sized portraits in downtown Providence has expanded to include five new pieces, including a banner installed at RISD Museum of Art. These larger than life depictions of local residents asks viewers to consider the individuals around them, to investigate their own preconceptions and process of seeing, and to question what civic rights look like for all members of their communities. In addition to local programming, including the Providence Arts Festival in June, the banners are intended to be included in the 50 State Initiative, including a For Freedoms town hall at the RISD Museum, in October 2018.
