Unpolished Legacies is a look at how Gorham changed our region and places around the world. The Gorham factory was a sprawling group of buildings next to Mashapaug Pond in Providence. The buildings were demolished in the 1990s, but they left their pollution behind. The show was co-curated by Becci Davis and Holly Ewald and was supported by the Providence Department of Art, Culture and Tourism, UPP Arts and AS220.
