Wish your were here: Providence Postcard Project opens Friday

Next month, she’s flying off to Southeast Asia. But before she goes, Betsey Biggs, a composer and artist who’s winding up her postdoctoral work at Brown University, wanted to say goodbye to the city she’s called home for the past few years. The result: The Providence Postcard Project,” a collection of more than 1,000 photographs of the city that Biggs and a team of collaborators have turned into old-fashioned 3″x5″ postcards.


On Friday, about half these mini-me views of Providence will go on display at Brown’s Granoff Center for the Creative Arts (154 Angell St.). Among the highlights: a close-up of the New York System sign on Smith St., a side view the Mr. Lemon lemonade stand in Wanskuck and a wonderful shot of the inside of Scialo Bros. Bakery on Federal Hill.


The show runs through Feb. 24. An opening reception takes place Friday from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. For more info go here. For a slideshow try here.
