RISD Museum: We Built a City Together Join us for a special interactive installation by Providence-based artists Meg Turner and Andrew Oesch. The two have created a large topographic view of Providence that will be installed on the Moore Terrace of the Chace Center. Explore city life as it is portrayed in the exhibition Inner City and other works around the Museum, then share how you work and live in and around cities in a collaborative project. With the guidance of volunteers, you can help to construct a giant city made of cardboard, drawings, markers and stickers. Then write a message about the City and that message or memory will be hung in a long ticker tape above the city. Free admission all day. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
