ABOUT & HISTORY

The Wall of Hope is a tile mosaic created by over 10,000 Rhode Island residents of all ages, races, religions, and cultures. The magnificent artwork is a tribute to loved ones lost, to the heroes of the 9-11-01 tragedy, and to our hope for the future. While our organization  conceived and managed this project, the Wall of Hope truly reflects a community effort. Thousands of hours of volunteer time and generously donated financial resources made this project possible from the very beginning. There were three installments, all located in Providence, Rhode Island.
