The 9-11 Wall of Hope, a response to the tragic events of 9-11-01, is a work of communal art. It is unique and reflects the beauty and heart of the citizens of Rhode Island.

 

More than 12,000 adults and children from every walk of life: every ethnic, religious, cultural, linguistic, socio-economic and educational background - contributed to create this memorial monument.

 

The monument stood in three parts at three downtown Providence locations (the Waterplace Park tunnel, the Providence Journal building and the RI Convention Center) for sixteen years as a testament to the strength of the American spirit.

 

The tile panels are currently in storage and are in need of repair so that they can be ready for installation at a new, downtown site by 9-11-2021.
