Informational Kiosks, Steel, Bronze, 10' h x 24" w x 24" d, 2009, Providence, RI
The Informational Kiosks are community bulletin boards that allow for posting in an effective way, without detracting from the neighborhood's attractiveness. Each kiosk features an easy-to-read, high-quality downtown map, which aids in way finding by highlighting major destinations. In its first phase, the Providence Downtown Improvement District (DID) identified locations for two kiosks, keeping public safety, pedestrian traffic, convenience, and visibility in mind. The DID partnered with the Steel Yard and artist Gillian Christy to design, construct and install two community information kiosks. christy created the bronze decorative top on each kiosk. The project was funded by the DID with support from the Providence Warwick Convention & Visitors Bureau.
