Our Exhibitions and Programming Series has invited six of PPL's past Creative Fellows - Laura Brown-Lavoie, Becci Davis, Kelly Eriksen, Keri King, Walker Mettling, and Micah Salkind- to host interactive online presentations that give new possibilities for connection, reflection, reframing, distraction, enjoyment, anticipation, and calm.
From archiving Rhode Island's response to the coronavirus pandemic, to digging deep into the logbooks in the Nicholson Whaling Collection, to decorating the backgrounds for your online meetings with downloadable sets of curated images, there are many ways to explore PPL's Special Collections from home.
