Art in Ruins

22 May

Art in Ruins is a Providence-based organization that celebrates the city’s postindustrial heritage as a source of creative inspiration.  In their mission statement, they express that:

“We at ArtInRuins believe that decay is beautiful, but not necessary. Artists live and work in the buildings that the city or developers have often forgotten, and now that Providence is becoming a hip town (or a suburb of Boston) these buildings and the artists, musicians and businesses who lived and worked in them are getting used for purposes that do not contribute to the community in the same way. We are not against new development, we are only opposed to unsustainable or irresponsible development.”
