Have you ever wished that the “Great Gatsby” era was a reality ?

 

Students from the Providence College Development of North American Architecture class will show how real this world is during a photography exhibition and presentation. Thursday, April 16, 2015, from 5 to 7 p.m., Slater Mill Gallery , 67 Roosevelt Ave., Pawtucket, R.I. Students in this class have been studying Art Deco and Machine Age architecture (1020s-1940s). Their exhibition intends to create awareness about the prevalence of these incredibly singular and unparalleled styles. Between the 1920s to the 1940s, Rhode Island constructed many beautiful Art Deco edifices with Machine Age motifs and breathtaking geometric shapes. The class is co-taught by Dr. Ann Norton, Professor of History of Architecture and Design, and Prof. Eric Sung, Professor of Photography. The students will display their photographs and discuss the uniqueness and flamboyancy of these frequently unnoticed, yet common, architectural styles.
