Pawtuxet Village
One Space, Many Places

An Exhibition of Maps by Adults and Children

An exhibition of six maps (in three sets) that illustrate the history of Pawtuxet Village from the pre-contact era to the present, created by children and adults participating in the One Space, Many Places project, was held on Monday, June 6, 2005, 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. at the Aspray Boat House, Pawtuxet Park in Warwick. The maps and accompanying explanatory panels were created in fall and spring workshops during which artist, Holly Ewald, and folklorist,Michael E. Bell, collaborated with educators, historians and community scholars to guide participants in exploring more than four hundred years of life in the village.

The event was free and open to the public. After the unveiling, the maps were on display at the William Hall Free Library and several other locations. .

The Pawtuxet Village: One Space, Many Places project has received support from The Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, The Rhode Island Council for the Humanities, the Cranston Public Library, and Voices and Visions of Village Life.
