We are a City defined by transitions

From January through April 2015, we held more than twenty small and large group discussions related to the George Street Overpass project. These community conversations were organized to inform our community about this exciting public art initiative, and also to ask for their input—a way to inform the artists engaged in the project about the character of Pawtucket, its history, and its future. These are some of their responses, related to Pawtucket as A City Defined by Transitions.

The transition from industrial to urban

The glorious crashing and coming together of old and new

Pawtucket is a community growing up

Pawtucket shows changes in time

It’s cool to connect the past with the future

The bridges here can be about connecting the old and the new

The Blackstone River is a flowing place. We are in the flow. There is a new flow.
