I am pleased to announce that PVDFest has commissioned a LEGO model of one of the most beautiful buildings in PVD: Mount Pleasant High School (as many had guessed). MP was a late 30’s Depression Era WPA structure (I learned this from Providence Preservation) and it shows that even in the depths of economic disaster, the people of Providence refused to put anything cheap, ugly, or compromising in their city. One of the largest civic structures in the city (indeed, my largest model), barely anyone in RI does not have some sort of cultural connection to this building (my grandmother went there for instance). Can’t wait to see you seeing the finished product at PVDFest in June!
