This event has already happened and was part of Ideas Fest 2021.

The Elmwood and West End neighborhoods of Providence used to have a big beautiful pond that was completely filled in by the early 20th century. Walker Mettling will share some of the stories and primary documents that he found while researching the “Where Long Pond Used To Be” mural project at the West End Rec Center as an an ACT Public Art Ideas Competition commissioned artist. The Murals are visible and visitable from the Bucklin Park entrance at the corner of Daboll and Dexter Streets (inside the historical footprint of Long Pond).
