Deindustrialization: Photographs by James Hunt
Exhibit on View Now Through January 10, 2020
M-F 9:00 A.M. -7:00 P.M.
Babson professor and photographer James Hunt has documented the once thriving textile mills that populated the Blackstone River Valley in central Massachusetts and Rhode Island. From Worcester to Providence, an average of one dam and one mill were built for every mile of river. For over 200 years, these mills were tended by hundreds of thousands of workers and processed millions of tons of textiles, generating vast wealth, for some, and vast pollution for the Blackstone, which was described as one of the most polluted rivers in the U.S. As work and money went elsewhere, the mills slowly emptied, monuments to economic cycles of boom and bust, now abandoned, burned, repurposed, or left waiting.
